A homemade substitute for hamburgers, if you ever have a veggie at a party or barbeque. Good, even without bun!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Throw all ingredients in food processor (or blender, if you dont have one).
  2. Pulse (or blend) until coarsely chopped.
  3. Chill mixture, then shape into four (4) 1/2-inch thick patties.

Good tasting, but mushy. I even added some flour because the mixture seemed so soft. Next time I might use breadcrumbs, we didnt have any on hand. The flavour is nice, though I didnt have kidney beans and so used black beans. The whole patty is pretty mushy though, I'll try leaving it more coarse next time as well.

This is a fabulous recipe. I make it often. I change out the seasoning, veggies, and the type of beans. We love it. Thank you so much for sharing this delightful versatile recipe.

Made this just as posted and we loved them. To get the burgers a little firmer I cook them slowly and part of the time with a lid on the pan. But I like the taste and texture, especially with a slice of low-fat cheese on top!
