There was not enough oil to make the burgers not stick... Even in a non-stick skillet. Our burgers fell apart and the taste was bland. Agree that it was a lot of work for a less than stellar outcome.
I guess I should have read the reviews before making this recipe. The burgers were ok, but we couldn't taste the Wasabi at all. If you want a Wasabi flavor, you definately have to add a whole lot more. As for the tofu - drain it for a day if possible. Like another commenter, our burgers wouldn't hold together for anything. I did not have chives, but added fresh dill and that was very good. As for the Edamame-Cilantro Pesto - here again with a name like that you would think it had great flavor - it did not. Very bland and I can see where more garlic and more green curry paste would have helped this too. I agree with the commenter that said it was ok but for all the fuss their are better and more tasty recipes out there.
We loved these burgers. We added more garlic than called for in the pesto and the flavor was heightened. My 6 year old son even ate this for dinner. We used a nice crusty sourdough bread for the bun.
