READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe is delicious. i made it two days ago, followed the directions to a t, and didn't have a problem with moistness or shape retention. It could have had a bit more flavor, but over all it was amazing. I'm actually making it again...

My family really enjoyed these. They were easy and tasty, though I felt they came out a bit dry for some reason. I didn't overbake them, so I think I would cut back on the bread crumbs next time or make fresh ones so that the consistency would be better. Great vegetarian meal!

My family who hates when I add a no meat night once a week asked for seconds. It's now on regular rotation.

Absolutely the best. Easy to make, my husband didn't even notice it was a meatless meal. This recipe is a real keeper!

I have had gastric lap band surgery and cannot eat some meats, so this was a wonderful way to get protein and iron into my diet. This will be a regular quick meal in our house. My daughter is a Vegan, and I'm sure she'd love it too. Is there a way to e-mail recipes from here? Enjoy!

I don't think I will ever make this recipe again. I did not care for the flavors and thought the oil and breadcrumbs added an unnecessary step and did not add much flavor just fat grams. We winded up mushing the croquettes into tortillas and making "bean" burritos out of them.
