Great base for a veggie burger. I think next time I will go with spicier chili beans (I used mild, unsure of how they would turn out) to add an extra kick, and probably sample adding other veggies like the previous reviewer did for some extra flavor. I added some pepperjack cheese to mine, as I was eating it without the bun, and that was also a lovely addition. Thanks for sharing!

These were OUTSTANDING MsSally!! My parents are demi-vegetarians, so I tagged this recipe as soon as I saw it, and I made these for a lovely supper whilst staying with them in England! I also added a grated carrot and some sweetcorn that we had left over. I used watercress instead of spinach leaves, as they were in season here in the UK. A dollop of low-fat mayonnaise on top of each burger completed this delicious supper, and we used local sunflower oil bread buns - amazing! Made for Photo Swap 2008 - my parents have saved this recipe! Thanks! FT:-)
