Can You Help Me Create a Well-Textured Veggie Burger?

Good Questions

Q: Can you help me out in my quest for a well-textured, protein and fiber filled veggie burger? I've made several different bean burgers lately and every one has had the texture of mush, regardless of how I put it together or what I added. They always squish out the sides of the bun. I am hoping you have a burger recipe suggestion that doesn't have that problem. The only one I noticed on this site was the recipe containing beets, which neither my husband or I are fans of.

Editor: Jen, first off, we do highly recommend Emma's veggie burger recipe. It actually does not taste like beets at all; there is a strong smoky flavor in those burgers that is really compelling. So you might want to give those a try.
