Cheap and easy recipe: Bean Veggie Burgers

This is an easy recipe to whip up veggie burger patties for lunch or dinner- throw it in a bun or pita, or cook and crumble to go in pasta, rice, or tacos.
It's an easy concept- I would recommend playing around with the flavours and ingredients until you find the perfect consistency/taste for you.

I used:
1 can of kidney beans (rinse and drain)
1/3 chopped white onion
1/2 clove of garlic
squirt of sriracha sauce
squirt of worchester sauce
dollop of plain fat free yogurt
pinch of dried oregano
sprinkle of cumin
Throw all of these in a food processor (or magic bullet) until it reaches a full mixed, thick, pasty consistency.
*salt and pepper to taste
*1 egg (i used a little less)
*1/2 cup of bread crumbs (you could sub this with quinoa, oats, bulgar, brown rice)
Mix the additional ingredients in
Then form 4 patties on aluminum foil
I fried on up with a little canola oil spray on a frying pan (about 5 min each size- time will be dependant on size and thickness) with mushrooms, crumbled it and put in a pita with spinach and red pepper- and wrapped up and froze the other three. This was too garlicky for me....next time I will omit the garlic and put in chili powder or chili flakes!
