Used 2-3 times the spices and added some onion powder, and used way more sriracha than mayo. Made sure to sear the patties well. This was great! Added minced garlic to chard; the chard wasn't that special but complemented the meal nicely.

The black bean patties exceeded our expectations! They stayed together okay when made as directed, but wouldn't hold up if eaten as a burger. Delicious with the sriracha mayo. The chard was a little bland, could have used some garlic or maybe more onion.

The flavors were delicious however the patties were pretty crumbly. It was more of a tasty black bean mash than anything.

Tasted really great, but the patios did not hold together. It ended up just being a rice and beans casserole.
