I added 2 Tbsp of ground flax seeds, mixed with 4 Tbsp of water (set in the fridge for 15 min before use) to act as 2 eggs, for binding. <br/>Also, I only had half of a 15 oz package of breadcrumbs, so I threw some slices of bread in the oven to make more.<br/>I used the suggestion for the salsa, great idea. <br/>Mushing and mixing with hands is a must, I think.
Okay, this is fantastic! I had to add some egg white because it was too dry but everyone devoured them, even my son who refuses to eat beans!!
I thought this was very tasty. However, I changed the the recipe up some. I converted the recipe to 2 servings. Instead of red and black beans I just used 2 cans of organic black beans and left out the bread crumbs (because I didn't have any). I also used a half cup of brown rice and seasoned with only onion salt and garlic powder to taste. I opted to fry due to time constraints. Before doing so I let the patties sit for a while to cool and harden before frying. I served them on toasted honey wheat bread with spicy mustard, diced purple onion, and organic nappa cabbage.
I've had both versions, and I definately enjoy these filling burgers!
