I loved this recipe!! I used a food processor to "mash" my beans and steamed carrot, then I added a bit of diced onion in with the chili and cumin... gave everything another quick spin and took the mix out to add bread crumbs and S&P. I was surprised at how nicely it formed in to patties and how well they stayed together. I baked mine on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet and flipped them for the last 5 minutes. They turned out with a lovely crispiness on the outside and the perfect moistness within. Fantastic kick of spice...I ate mine as a platter and my husband made a huge sandwich of 2 patties...we both piled our plates high with "taco type fixings" (tomato, onion, lettuce, salsa and sour cream)Filling and fabulous. I can see myself playing with tons of variations of this great bean burger! Thanks for a "keeper" alyseepoo.

I absolutely loved the flavour and texture of these burger patties! I followed the recipe pretty closely, using one can of kidney beans (which worked out to be a little less than 2 cups), one small carrot, plus I added 1/4 of a small onion, finely diced, as suggested by other reviewers. This gave me 4 good-sized patties. I imagine that this is an extremely versatile recipe, but I liked it just with the chili powder and cumin. My only little complaint is that they came out a tad dry after baking, but I wasn't too bothered by that. A simple and delicious recipe! Will definitely make again.

UPDATE: Made these again today, but using a mix of oatmeal and flour in place of breadcrumbs (didn't have any). I also added a dash of garlic powder and some pepper to the mash, and instead of baking (no oven) I cooked the patties on a nonstick skillet over medium heat, about 3-4 minutes on the first side and then about 2 minutes after flipping. They were even better than I'd remember them tasting!

Loved these. The first time I used oatmeal and flour as I didn't have any bread crumbs. They were good, but I used bread crumbs the second time and they were awesome. I still didn't have bread crumbs but made some in the food processor, then added the rest of the ingredients and pulsed a little. I did add some fresh onion with the carrots and beans. Spices were right on. I froze a couple of the burgers the first time. They froze and thawed fine. Great recipe. I've eaten some as a plain patty and some on a bun.
