There are a lot of good commercial veggie burgers available, but when you want to make your own, here’s a great recipe that I adapted (i.e. made even easier) from an old Food & Drink magazine.
Super Easy and Tasty Veggie Burgers
1 can red kidney beans
2 Tbsp oil
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup mushroom, chopped
1/2 cup salsa
2 Tbsp chile powder (plus any other spices you like; I like cayenne)
1.5 - 2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (for extra flavour use seasoned breadcrumbs)
Mix together onion, garlic and mushroom and cook in microwave for a few minutes.
In a bowl, mash kidney beans, then add the onion mix and rest of the ingredients. Adjust the amount of rice to get the right consistency.
Form patties and roll in cornmeal to prevent sticking. They cook well in frying pan or on grill.
This makes 4 large burgers or 6 smaller ones. They freeze well if you make a larger batch.
