Worth the Effort

This is the Whitewater Veggie Burger and it is full of good ingredients and tastes divine...
1T veg oil; 1 onion diced; 1 clove of garlic, minced; 1T cumin; 1.5T chili powder; 1 19oz can of black beans well drained, rinsed and roughly pureed; 1t oregano; 1/4c parsely or cilantro, chopped; 2T sesame oil; 1/2c roasted and chopped almonds; 1c sunflower seeds; 3c bread crumbs; 1/2c soy sauce; 5eggs; 2c grated carrots; 2c oats; flour for dredging and 2T oil.
In a really large skillet, saute onions and garlic in oil. Place in a large mix bowl and cool. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well and shape patties. Dredge lightly in flour. Heat the last 2T oil in your skillet and brown burgers on both sides. You may have to do in batches and add a little more oil. I have made up to 20 burgers and they are great with tzatziki, tomato, onion and lettuce. But the best thing about these other than they are so good is that you can freeze what you do not eat and then reheat on a baking sheet for twenty minutes once they have defrosted. Try them, you will really like them.
