    C. Taylor's Note:

    This is a delicious and easy way to get more beans into your diet. This is an extremely versatile recipe, and you can easily change the taste by simply changing the seasonings. The recipe below is just a guideline for your own creativity, and I tend to adjust the ingredients based on what I have on hand. This is extremely healthy and the low cost can't be beat. Serve plain, in a tortilla, pita, or bun, topped with the sauce (below) tomato, onion, lettuce, etc.

      So sorry -- I really wanted to like this, but it just didn't work for me. I used chickpeas, 1 large egg, and one small onion. The mixture never really came together -- I had added in over 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, and it was still very mushy, not at all like a burger. I didn't want to add more breadcrumbs, feeling that I'd end up eating a bread sandwich. It really felt like hummus, except I can't use it as hummus because of the raw egg. Too bad! I loved your mix-and-match approach.
