Mushroom Burgers
I gave this recipe a four star rating because it is delicious but I had to do some extra prep, likely because of how it was prepared by me. I chopped my mushrooms and onion in my food processor. The onion came out too finely chopped and somewhat watery- my fault of course- but it affected the cooking. I used worcesteshire and soy sauce to flavor mine and they were delicious. I also used half rolled oats and half bread crumbs, and I added some garlic as well. The mixture was very soft and wet, so I scooped "patties" onto a baking sheet and baked them at 400 for about 12 minutes to set them, then I froze them to eat for lunches throughout the week. They came out very good and even though they were still soft it didn't really matter much to me. I put them on one of those 100 calorie rolls with some veggie cheese and lettuce and they were awesome.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
Just made these burgers. The only changes I made were to add an extra quarter cup of bread crumbs, I used a yellow bell pepper instead, and I added a half a jalapeno pepper. I used my food processor to chop all the ingredients first, then mixed them and shaped them. I placed them on a foiled try and froze them for about an hour. I used a grill pan with a little Smart Balance spray to cook one up and it was YUM!!! I'm keeping the rest frozen for a quick lunch/dinner. They are a bit soft but it doesn't even matter because they're so tasty and healthy!
