    I’m a kitniyot eater, but there are no veggie burgers to be found in stores so I made this recipe. I substituted matza meal for the bread crumbs. Turned out great.

  2. I loved these! I have always made veggie burgers, always dependent on hat veggies I have left over — somehow kids ate them as burgers, though not as separate vegetables. Your combo is dee-lish!

    To make this recipe vegan and gluten-free, I used pesadik gluten-free panko bread crumbs and flax seeds! Great recipe!
