Bean Burgers

There are many recipes for garden burgers on the web, but you will not find any that are simpler or tastier.

In a food processor, blend until smooth: one 14-0z. can of chili beans, drained, 1 egg, and 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (more or less to get a consistency that can be formed into patties) until smooth. Add 1/2 tsp. onion powder and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and pulse until uniformly mixed. Spoon into a heated, oiled skillet and flatten with the back of a spoon into patties. Fry each side on medium heat until browned and set. Serve with lettuce, tomato and jalapeno. Makes 2 -4 patties, depending on size.

Variations: use black beans and a dash of soy sauce, nama shoyu, or Braggs Liquid Aminoes in place of the chili beans (pictured). Add red pepper flakes if you like heat. Replace the egg with 1 Tb. ground flaxseed and 3 Tb. water if you prefer.

To your health and happiness,
