My vegetarian friend made these and I got to try them. I thought they were delicious and am posting so I can make them for my family. Thanks Claire. Recipe adapted from Southern Living.

These are the most delightful burgers--they're a snap to make, they taste great, and they're even healthy!! I first saw this recipe in The Coastal Living Cookbook*, put out by Coastal Living magazine, and have made it many times since. I usually make one third of the recipe and that makes three nice size burgers. Even my husband, a confirmed bean hater, enjoys them (smart man--lol!!). Thanks for posting this ratherbeswimmin'!!! (*Note: The Coastal Living Cookbook version lists 3/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.)
