Black Bean Veggie Burger recipe

My favorite is a veggie burger. No soy, no tofu, no Boca burger--this one actually tastes great!

Veggie Burger
1 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed & drained
1 cup brown rice, cooked
2 Tbsp. tomato sauce
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cloves garlic
2 cups bread crumbs
1 tsp salt
a few drops of hot sauce
1 Tbsp light olive oil

Combine beans, rice, tomato sauce, cumin, oregano, and garlic in food processor. Transfer to bowl, add salt, and hot sauce. Slowly mix bread crumbs into mixture with hands. Will make about 6-8 small patties. If mixture is too dry to mold, add small amounts of water until you get the right consistency. Cook with oil or on grill (only a few min. on the grill--dries out if left on too long). Serve with usual burger toppings.

I already printed it out Traci and I'm going to attempt them some time this week. Let me know how they are if you get to them before I do.

Stephanie says to remember that when you are cooking these you are basically warming them. Everything is already cooked so it isn't like grilling raw hamburger or meat. They will get very dry and icky if you overcook them. :confused:

Good point Jennifer that I'll try to remember.
