Vegan Bean Burgers

Vegan Bean Burgers
From the kitchen of:Moriah Lindsley
—————–
– Beans as the base (black are my favorite, but any will do)
– Rice, cooked until soft and sticky
– Oil, to help the patties stick together when grilling/baking
– Lots of veggies (black olives, peas, corn, shredded carrots, sun-dried tomatoes, shredded zucchini, etc.)
– Seasonings, depending on what kind of flavor you want to impart
– Bread crumbs, finely ground

Blend veggies in food processor until they are small, uniform pieces about the size of a pea or corn kernel (or puree if you prefer). Blend beans in food processor until sticky and they form a smooth mass. In large bowl, combine beans, rice, veggies and a good helping of oil. Sprinkle in seasonings and some bread crumbs. Stir to combine or mash together with your hands until mixed well. Add more bread crumbs if it is still real wet and sticky. They shouldn’t be dry, but should be able to hold their shape. Form into patties and freeze, or grill and serve right away.
