B's and O's will want to substitute for a more tolerable bean and mushroom. Mushrooms are the key to keeping this veggie burger together.

  • Entree
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (or any oats)
  • 8 ounces button mushroom (common white)
  • 1 can pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 2 stalks celery sliced thinly
  • 1 cup (I used frozen) broccoli
  • Salt
  • Garlic (I used chopped from a jar)
How to make it:
  1. Saute the carrots, celery and garlic until just soft.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a food processor until you get a consistency of meatloaf.
  3. Form into patties.
  4. Separate with parchment paper and freeze in ziplock until needed.
  5. My recipe made 9 patties.
  6. I fried it on the stove in olive oil, but you can also bake them on a broiler pan at 350 for about a half hour.
  7. If frying, you will want to turn the heat fairly low and cook for quite a while - 30 minutes or so.
