Veggie Burger

After a few years of buying high priced, high sodium veggie burgers, I finally decided it was time to make them myself. I did a lot of Googling, cooking and eating, but once I discovered this recipe and how versatile it is, I will never buy another frozen, pre-made burger again.     

¥   1 Can Chick Peas, Rinsed
¥   1 Can Black Beans, Rinsed
¥   1 Egg
¥   1 Cup Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
¥   Onions, Chopped
¥   Mushrooms, Chopped
¥   Bell Peppers, Chopped
¥   Italian spices
¥   Pepper

1.         In a medium-large bowl, partially mash beans
2.         Mix in egg and bread crumbs and spices
3.         Add desired amount of onions, mushrooms, and peppers
4.         Mix thoroughly and form into patties
5.         Fry, grill or bake 

Additions & Suggestions:
¥   This recipe is a great base recipe that allows for other favorite ingredients to be added or substituted.  
¥   Leftovers can be crumbled and fried and used as a ground meat substitute for tacos, Sloppy Joe's, chili, etc.
