These are good! Serve them in pita bread with sprouts and tomatoes. Make sure you cut everything in tiny pieces and mash the beans well.

These really are tasty and satisfying! I used a food processor to easily mash my beans and mix in the other ingredients. The patties held together very well ~ I suggest wetting your hands when forming them. A half-batch made 5 good-sized patties which I served on homemade hamburger buns. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
