Thai carrot burgers

During the Fringe festival this year an aquaintance TJ Dawe stayed with us while he was performing his fringe play. He is a kindred spirit who is also a very talented performer and writer. He is also a vegetarian. While here he made us a few incredible veggie burgers from his favourite cookbook and when we raved about them he sent us a copy of the book as a thanks for letting us stay with him. Last night I made a new recipe -Thai Carrot burgers -from the book and wow...I think it is the best veggie burger I have ever had. Onions, garlic and ginger cooked with carrots and coriander, cinnamon and turmeric and held together by egg whites, peanut butter and breadcrumbs with some fresh lime juice and parsley. Amazing. It was a bit of work to make them but they are so incredibly delicious and healthy...and it makes 4 so we get them for supper tonight too. So amazing the buns needed nothing but some mayo and lettuce.
Yes. Veggie burgers can be good. So VERY good.
I am looking forward to trying the other recipes now.

Do they taste like carrots? Thai is good. Carrots are not.

They definitely have a bit of carrot flavour, but there are so many flavours and spices in them that they aren't distinctly carroty. You may like them.
