I used a can of Amy's black refired beans replaced the bread crumbs with oats and the flour with cornmeal to make it gluten free. For the cheese, I used Daiya Italian, to make it dairy-free. I am not a big eater, but I ate 2 of these, so they must be good!

Cooked on a griddle and used pinto beans that I had cooked from dry. I was pleased with how well it stayed together and the flavor. It was a bit gummy, but that could be the different beans. Served w/o buns and w/ a bit more cheese on top, plus sweet potato fries and kale as sides. Thanks for a great recipe!

Downright outstanding veggie burgers! Much better than Morningstar Farms:) They held together very well! I served them without any buns, since they're quite starchy already. Didn't miss the buns at all:) I used a 15 1/2 ounce can of black beans, and kept everything else the same. I used ketchup and added some hot sauce, and I used a store-bought brand of parmesan bread crumbs. I'd sure make this again! I served with my favorite burger toppings - pickles, ketchup and mustard. I grilled them in the oven and had no problems with sticking (I used a non-stick spray). I would definitely make these again!
