Vegetarian Burgers, 3/28/12

by Gary Duke at Alley Oops


1 can (16 ounces) black or pinto beans, drained and rinsed. I like to use half black and half pinto.

Mash beans up with a fork or potato masher, I don't like to mash to a creamy consistency, leave it a little chunky.


In a skillet, saute the following ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 onion, finely diced

1/2 bell pepper, finely diced

1 cup fresh mushrooms, diced

saute veggies till the are tender, pour off any excess liquid, let cool and add:


1 egg

1/2 cup bread crumbs, I use panko

2 tablespoons Lipton's{}Recipe Secrets{}Onion and Mushroom soup mix


stir mixture into beans, mix well and form into patties, cook in a hot pan or hot grill. I have found that it works best for me if I use foil when cooking on a grill.

Serve on a burger bun with your favorite hamburger condiments.
