Hi there,

I'm new to the forum, so forgive me if this question has been asked before. I couldn't find a relevant post.

I made the Veggie Burgers recipe from "Vegan with a Vengeance" and although they tasted great, they were more like Sloppy Joes than burgers. They really didn't hold together at all outside of charring them enough to make some rough edges. I followed the recipe to a T but no luck. Any advice? I'm a vegan cooking novice, so not sure what the main ingredient for "stick-togetherness" is... any advice would be great!

Those are tough. I added more oat flour and refrigerated mine and I made sure the oil was really hot before I put the burgers in.

Adding more oat flour and refrigeration have definitely been what have helped me get these to stay together, and even so, they're still crumbly.

Potato starch saves my veggie burgers every time. also first frying, then letting them sit in the oven for a bit, maybe 10-15 mins.
