Good. I'd make this again.
I agree with the other reviews, but we enjoyed the dish. I gave up on the patties and just sprinkled the crumbled patties on the salad.
Wish I had read reviews before making. Like others the patties were dry and fell apart...should have added an egg. The flavor was good though and we did eat it.
A rare miss by Real Simple. Like others have experienced, there was a problem with the texture of the finished product. We tried adding more oil, adjusting heat, to no avail. We still had a mushy dish that barely resembled a patty. Our theory is that this recipe could benefit from some breadcrumbs and egg (to hold everything together).
In the end, my husband and I really enjoyed this dish. However, I found that in the preparation: the patties fell apart easily and when I put my burner on med-high heat, the olive oil began to smoke. I simply turned it down but still ended up with mushy patties. I think the latter problem is my own ~ I need to learn how to fry. The patties could use a little more stickiness, though, and that's really my only complaint. We loved all the flavors and will definitely have these again for dinner.
I followed the recipe exactly but had to add a small amount of water to the chickpea mixture in order to try to form intact patties. Even so, they fell apart. Also, the yogurt/lemon dressing was a bit too tart as well as humdrum. We won't be making this recipe again.
