Vegetarian Bean Burgers

Basic Bean Burgers

This is a recipe for basic bean burgers that I have been making for many years. It is a good recipe and can be modified and experimented with for different flavors and textures. It is easy on the budget and my own kids liked them growing up and still do!

BEAN BURGERS

Ingrediants

4 cups cooked beans (any kind are fine, I am partial to lima beans and cranberry beans) canned or cooked dry beans

2 cups diced celery

2 cups chopped onion (about 1 medium)

1 egg

2 cups bread crumbs ( use judgment on this, you might want more or less depending on consistancy)

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp ground sage

1/2 tsp dry thyme (or 1 tsp fresh)

1/2 tsp dry rosemary (or 1 tsp fresh)

1 tsp garlic powder

In a large pot put the cooked beans, celery and onions with a little water. Bring to a light boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Drain off water. let cool.

Put beans, celery and onions into a large bowl. Add breadcrumbs, seasonings, and egg.

Mash everything up. ( I use a potato masher)

When the mixture is a good consistancy and holds together, form into patties and put on a large lightly oiled cookie sheet. I usually get about 12 patties with this recipe.

Bake in a 350 degree oven about 30 minutes on one side, then turn patties over for another 30 minutes.

These are good on sandwiches or just as they are!

This recipe can be modified in lots of ways, here is another way I made them and they were real good!

Use your basic bean burger recipe except: subtitute

1 cup chopped zucchini for 1 of the cups of celery.

use 1 tsp italion seasoning and 1 tsp oregano in place of the sage, tyme and rosemary.
