Bean Burgers

My husband has high cholesterol, so over the years, I’ve learned to cook with more beans and less red meat. A couple of years ago, we received a handout that had a recipe for bean burgers that was surprisingly good. This is our version, since of course we had to change it a bit. My older daughter, who detests real hamburgers, loves these! –Mellyn

Yield: 10 burgers

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups dry refried beans from the LDS cannery
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 2 Tablespoons onion powder
  • 5 teaspoons beef bouillon
  1. Heat water and add refried beans. Let stand until thick.
  2. Add rice, wheat germ, onion powder and beef bouillon to refried bean mixture.
  3. Mix well and shape the same way you would hamburger patties.
  4. Cook on a griddle or skillet sprayed with oil. Flip when golden brown.
  5. Serve as you would a hamburger — with ketchup, mustard, pickles and whatever other condiments your family enjoys.

**You can also make these with canned refried beans or 2 cups of mashed beans that you’ve cooked yourself.
