BBQ Bean Burger

I've tried and made quite a few types of veggie burgers, but they all have that sit-in-your-stomach-like-a-rock feeling for a short while afterwards. So I came up with an idea for a lighter burger.

1 can white kidney beans, mashed
2-3 large carrots, sliced into small strips
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp BBQ sauce
Fresh sandwich bread
Olive oil

1. Combine ingredients in a bowl. Add a few tbsp of olive oil if too dry.
2. Form mix into patties
3. Heat a few tbsp pol in a pan. Cook patties until browned on both sides, about 15 minutes.
4. Place on bread. Spread 1-2 tbsp BBQ sauce on top of patty. Serve with tomato, lettuce, and onions.

  1. I've tried several bean burgers but, never found one that I like.

    I love the idea of a homemade one! Must try this!
