Members of our family are notorious for making too many beans. Since our children quickly tire of eating the same meal for days, I came up with an adaptation of a bean and rice veggie burger I found in this book.....,
....which uses leftover bean soup as the base of the burger. Hope you enjoy! :)
Yields: 18 patties
5 cups cooked bean soup, of any kind, drained
2 cups cooked white or brown rice
3 cups bread crumbs
2 cups oatmeal
2 T sesame seeds
2 T sunflower seeds (optional)
½ cup chopped onions
¼ cup parmesan cheese
2 T dijon mustard
2 cubes crumbed vegetarian bouillon cubes
2 t of your favorite hamburger seasoning
1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Form into patties, then place on a hot griddle until browned. Flip and brown the other side.
3. Top with cheese, avocado, spinach and condiments.
