READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Rhiannon and Matt

From a little book called Best-Ever Burgers, these veggie burgers can be enjoyed by vegans and vegetarians. With salad and pita bread they make a substantial meal. Be sure to thoroughly drain the beans after rinsing to help with binding the burgers together.

I chose this recipe because it sounded different in a good way. I was NOT disappointed nor was my husband. You had to eat them open faced on a slice of toast and top it with all your favorite condiments, catsup, brown mustard,hot pepper rings or even salsa. They were a thick mushy consistency but delicious . Open faced is the only way to enjoy as a sandwich.
