Can these be frozen? Better to freeze before or after cooking?
Hi Lori! The patties in this recipe can be frozen in an air-tight bag or container for up to a month. We recommend freezing them before cooking so the flavors are the most tasty right when you eat. Enjoy!
Can I make them in the air fryer?
My husband is allergic to flax, what is a good substitute for flax meal?
i think the purpose of the flax is too hold the mixture together. Maybe chia seeds would work? or possibly some silken tofu.
This was quite tasty. I made the mistake of using a bun instead of the recommended Bibb or red-leaf lettuce. Stick with the lettuce as I think the bun dulled the flavors a bit. I’d also recommend making the Carrot Pickle portion of the recipe first so that the flavors have a chance to develop before you place it on top of the burgers.
I know they are a major piece of the recipe, but I’m allergic to mushrooms. Anything that can be used in its place?
