Rice 'n Bean Burgers

What's that?  You're tired of seeing burgers, you say?


My burgers, though, are like snowflakes...

Each one is different! ;)

Adapted from HHL
Mash up 1 1/2 cups red kidney beans until only a few remain whole.  Mix with 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice, a generous 1 cup mashed sweet potato, ~1/4 cup nooch, ~3 tbsp chili powder, liquid smoke, paprika, a few tbsp bbq sauce, a splash of cider vinegar, and sauteed garlic and shallot.  The mixture should be fairly sticky - if not, throw in some sugar free maple syrup (or just add some anyway...).  Now, drop the burgers (like drop cookies, only bigger!) onto a baking sheet, and bake at 375 for 20 minutes or so.  They should be nice and crunchy!  Serve on buns, with pickles, avocado, and tofu mayo.

    1. Hah. You know, I think you could stick a shoelace between two pieces of fresh homemade bread, and that would taste good! (Not to say that these tasted ANYTHING like shoelaces...)
