Yay, patties! I do like a good patty, and bulgur ones, too. Plus, the lemon balm yoghurt sounds so enticing.

Love the idea of healthy meatless patties. Nice clicks as always :)

Elisabeth 16/10/12 15:54

Angie, you have so may uses for Bulgur Wheat...just incredible. Absolutely loving these awesome patties. I keep mentioning that I will make something different with my bulgur and lucky for me, I have all the ingredients on hand. The only thing I will not be able to get is the lemon balm leaves, so I will substitute it for grated lemon and perhaps some lemon juice?

Munatycooking 16/10/12 19:20

So yummy! love the clicks and the presentation, would love to try it ;)

Cheap Ethnic Eatz 16/10/12 19:44

I have had bean or various peas patties but never bulgur. Sounds really interesting. The flavors are spot on too, love it.

Soni 16/10/12 20:19

Oh Yumm!! Love the look of these and could easily enjoy a plateful :) Delicious and healthy!

The Squishy Monster 16/10/12 20:25

What a great twist to "veggie" burgers. I'll have to give these a try as they seem to be a nod to the lentil patties I had a few weeks ago. I enjoyed those and I just know I'll love these!

Viviane Bauquet Farre 16/10/12 22:06

Yum, Angie! Bulgur is so underrated! I love this idea and, as always, your execution is flawless. Lemon balm yogurt - oh la la!

Biren @ Tea Tattler 16/10/12 23:42

This is something I need to try. I have never cooked with bulgur. Looks and sounds delicious!

Parsley Sage 17/10/12 00:08

You must have KNOWN I had a bag full of bulgar in the pantry with absolutely NO idea what to do with it :) These look fabulous!

Reeni Pisano 17/10/12 03:09

What healthy and delicious little bulgur patties Angie! Love the lemon balm yogurt!

Juliana 17/10/12 04:51

Looks delicious Angie, what a perfect combination of these bulgur patties with the lemon balm yogurt. Beautiful pictures as always.
Hope you are having a fantastic week :)

noobcook 17/10/12 07:44

Joanne 17/10/12 14:30

And to think, I just bought a bag of bulgur! How perfect are these!!

Ah Tze @ Awayofmind Bakery House 17/10/12 17:12

The flavour of this patties is new to me, bulgur and the cumin powder are those of the ingredients I have yet to try on. It looks delicious! wish I can try a piece or two :)

the food dude 17/10/12 17:26

I have yet to try bulgur, but these look delicious! Always great to learn something new from you!

Jasline (Food Is My Life) 17/10/12 17:52

Beautiful photos! I've not seen bulgur in my local supermarkets before, hopefully I can chance upon them so I can try this delicious-looking recipe!

Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies 17/10/12 18:26

My mom always grew lemon balm--I remember it taking over the yard! She never did anything with it though (although as a kid, I loved rubbing the leaves between my fingers and smelling them!), so it never occurred to me to cook with them. I bet the sauce is so fragrant!

Lyndsey Chapin 17/10/12 19:39

These are really nice I enjoy meatless patties. You make them look so special! Thanks!

Faith 17/10/12 20:34

What a lovely recipe, Angie! That flavorful yogurt sounds like the perfect topping!

Ashlee Christopher 17/10/12 20:40

Kiran @ KiranTarun.com 17/10/12 22:51

This looks like an amazingly delicious and light appetizer!!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 18/10/12 00:07

They look so tasty! I've never used lemon balm nor see it here. I wonder if I could substitute some lemon thyme that I still have growing in a pot?

lisa is cooking 18/10/12 00:25

Those golden, veggie patties look delicious! I wish I had lemon balm in my garden to add to the yogurt. Sounds great.

rita cooks italian 18/10/12 01:11

Hi Angie! Lemon balm? I was wondering for a long time what to do with it apart from flavoring my tea. Bulgur patties, sound exicting I wonder if I will be able to keep the mixture together when I'm frying it.

Callius Marie 18/10/12 05:10

They really look so crispy and at the same time chewable. I think I wanna rush to the market..

Helene Dsouza 18/10/12 12:16

Agreed! that looks mighty delicious and I bet its addictive! thanks for sharing your recipe angie!

Curiouseed 19/10/12 01:41

Beautiful pictures!! I love patties, they look delicious :)

Amelia 19/10/12 04:57

Hi Angie, interesting recipe. Thanks for sharing it look delicious.
As usual always enjoy your photography and beautiful presentation.

Have a nice week ahead.

Cass @foodmyfriend 19/10/12 05:41

I haven't had lemon balm in so long. You make me crave the weirdest things! This recipe looks like the perfect vegie treat for me :)

Rosa's Yummy Yums 20/10/12 21:42

Mouthwatering! A great meal. I really like that combination and yogurt sauce.

Lemon balm yogurt... oh my goodness, Angie...you always come up with the most exquisite ideas! This is a fabulous recipe.

MaryMoh 21/10/12 21:16

These look interesting and delicious. I was at the supermarket the other day and was staring at the bulgur wheat and wonder what on earth they are and how to cook it. Now I know...at least 1 dish :D Thanks very much for sharing.

My Little Space 22/10/12 14:59

This sounds pretty interesting. Have never heard of bulgur? Thanks for sharing.

Spicie Foodie 22/10/12 15:59

What a delicious recipe! I love bulgur. These patties would also be a great and healthy snack. Thanks for sharing:)

Yasmeen 1/11/12 12:33

How fantastic - perhaps I'm a bit biased being a Middle Eastern blogger and all, but I do love the regional flavors here. We love bulghur but admittedly I rarely shape it into patties. You've inspired me to bring that habit back into our kitchen! Just lovely.

Cinnamon and Thyme 3/11/12 18:21

I love bulgur! These look so yummy :).
