My new favorite veggie burger

What's a vegan food blog without a bunch of veggie burgers? Here's my first entry, though I can't take credit. It's the "Ultimate Veggie Burger" from Robin Robertson's Vegan Planet, so you can find the recipe there. We've all followed veggie burger recipes that end up as crumbly, soggy messes in the frying pan, and this corrects those common problems. It prominently features brown lentils and walnuts, parsley and onion for seasoning, and wheat gluten flour and ground flax seeds as binders. The texture and taste were great (the wheat gluten is minimal, so it doesn't get that gummy texture when gluten is excessive or improperly cooked), and these would hold up very well on the grill. I would cook them in a frying pan or in the oven first, and save them to be re-heated on the grill.
