These would be great a side or as a burger as they seem relatively filling. The first bite I had tasted of mushrooms, carrots, garlic and scallions. The "meat" holding this together is actually rice. It was flavorful and did not pretend to be fake meat in anyway. If you are willing to try some Asian flavors and enjoy veggie burgers, then this is a solid choice. I would definitely buy these again.
