    blucoat's Note:

    This recipe is a modified version from this month's Gourmet Magazine (June 2008). The burgers can be prepared on the grill or in a skillet. If you don't want to use a food processor, you can simply chop the onions finely and mash the beans and walnuts together before mixing in everything else by hand. Uncooked patties can be chilled, covered, up to 4 hours.

      this was pretty good. I sub'd black beans for the pinto and pine nuts for the walnuts. Had a good flavor but was SUPER crumbly. I think next time I'll chill them longer. Also, it doesn't list the amounts for the mayo., or lime juice/zest. but it's 1/4 C. Mayo, 1/4 tsp. zest, and 1 tsp. lime juice (per the magazine). They wouldn't have been as good without the lime-mayo IMO. Good!!

      Very near five stars. I agree with the reviewer who said they were crumbly. BUT, that said, I made a meatloaf of it, and with BBQ sauce, fantastic! Then, I used the surplus (I made a double recipe) in a cabbage/beef soup recipe w great success again. I made one alteration, using a half bag of Fresh and Easy's sweet and spicy nut mix in place of the walnuts and cayenne, and highly recommend that. I also tried the crumbly meatloaf mixture w some picante, and am sure it would make fantastic tacos. Know what? I'm going w 5 stars! Great recipe to cut down on meat consumption.

      These are delicious... so tasty and easy to toss together in the food processor. I'm kicking myself for not following the step of chilling the formed burgers before cooking because mine fell apart. I'm sure that chilling is designed to avoid that! I might also adjust slightly and add in an egg to help bind things together next time. Otherwise, the tastes blended really well, and were lovely when paired with avocado, tomato, and mayo on fresh Italian rolls. I can easily see variations of this with different beans (e.g., chick peas) and different herbs/spices. Yum! Thanks for posting.
