High-Energy Bean Burgers

20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
10 ingredients
4 servings
This is another recipe I found in my "Brain Foods for Kids: Over 100 Recipes to Boost Your Child's Intellegence" (a send in freebie from Kashi) My family likes veggies burgers so we thought we'd give these a spin. They turned out great. For those of you who like spicy foods, feel free to jazz them up. The original recipe said to chill mixture for an hour to help firm it and then shape into patties and dredge in flour before frying. But I still found that too messy so I changed it to the directions you see below. Also original recipe called for kidney beans, but I always have pintos on hand so that is what I used. I'm sure you can use any bean you like and have it turn out fine.
