Can this be made in food processor?  Or would it be better to whisk by hand?  (I don’t have a mixer. )

Reply

Yes, mixing it by hand with a whisk or with a spatula with work. Mixer is better because after adding eggs and water as the dough will become thick.

Does the nutritional values include the buns?

Yes they do 😊

Hi, Martina!
Super loud this idea of the burger. I'm vegetarian, up to a point ...
Sometimes calling nature causes me to break into these delicacies
I was once at a party and forgetting that "I'm vegetarian" I ate until he took my ambulance.
Know that what you do here, along with Lauren, is a wonderful thing.
I only wish you good, and keep on doing the same!
Good job !!!
