Veg to the E "Burgers"

I tossed these together today for lunch.

1 onion(the size is up to you), chopped
2 portabella mushroom caps(or about 1 1/2 cups), Chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 15 oz. can refried beans(if you are not eating animal bi-products make sure you get lard free beans!)
1 cup TVP(textured vegetable protein), Rehydrated(see package)
1-2 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4-1/2 cup flour
You can saute the onions and mushrooms but it's not necessary. If you decide not to the onions will just be a little crunchy. The mixture should be sticky but not gloppy.
In about 2 tablespoons of olive oil fry these babies up, about 5 min each side on med/low heat.
Makes 8-10 "burgers". Serve on whole grain buns with lettuce and tomato...Yum!


  1. I loved this, it tastes so good! :)

  2. I'm so glad you liked them! These are the ones you didn't put the mushrooms in, right?
    How was the consistency? were they hard to cook up?
