Bean & Rice Burgers Recipe

Step 1

Heat greased (I use cooking spray) grill or electric frypan on med heat. Or, you can grease a 13"x9" glass baking pan and bake at 350F for 30 Min. Just spread mix in pan and cook uncovered. Use a pancake turner to cut and remove cooked 'burger'.

Step 2

Mash beans. Add all ingredients and mix well. (If you use all of the ingredients listed your mix may be a bit dry. You might want to add a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of soy, nut, or rice milk. Of coarse you also could use whole milk. Be sure you don't thin it too much or it will be mushy. Look for a 'hamburger' consistency.) Spoon about 2 heaping Tablespoons of mix onto grill or frypan for each burger and flatten with greased pancake turner. Turn several times rather than just once on each side like conventional burgers, they have a better texture that way.
