Veggie Burger - Recipe

I stumbled across a recipe for homemade veggie burgers and figured I'd give it a shot for Meatless Monday.

1 (15 oz) can beans
1/2 c dry oats
1/2 oz minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbs seasoning mix of your choice (I used 1 tsp each of cumin, salt, and chili powder)
2 1/2 oz water

1. Rinse the beans and mash them with a fork, desired consistency.

2. Add add the oats, onion, garlic, and seasoning.

3. Add the water a little bit at a time and mix to desired consistency.

4. Form 4 patties and fry in pan sprayed with nonstick spray.

The exact nutritional information will vary depending on what beans you use, but I used pinto beans to calculate, because that is what the original recipe calls for. Each patty has 131.8 calories, 1.2 g fat, 24.3 g carbs (6.9 g fiber), 6.8 g protein. 2 WW points/Core friendly.
