Directions

Yield:
5 burgers

Serving size:
1 burger

Combine rinsed and drained pinto and black beans in a large bowl; mash well using a potato masher. Stir in oats, egg substitute, ketchup, garlic powder, liquid smoke, cayenne pepper, and green onions; mix well. Allow mixture to stand 15 minutes to thicken, then shape into 5 (4-inch) patties approximately 1/2-inch in thickness.

Coat a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add oil, and warm over medium to medium-high heat. Add burgers and cook 2–3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned; turn using a large spatula to prevent burgers from breaking apart. Serve on whole wheat buns topped with favorite burger toppings.
