Veggie Burgers

I have found some recipes online. I found one that sounds really great with black beans and rice. I want YOUR veggie burger recipes . . . tried and true, so please share. Any kind of meat "alternative" would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • Combine salsa ingredients and set aside. In a food processor, chop
    mushrooms into extra fine pieces. Add beans, chiles, Worcestershire,
    chili powder, salt, onion powder, breadcrumbs and egg; process until
    fully combined. Liberally coat a large nonstick pan with cooking
    spray. Form 4 patties, then gently place onto pan. Grill over medium
    heat 5 minutes per side, or until a crisp crust forms and the burger
    is heated through. Place each burger into a pita half with 1D4 of the
    salsa and avocado slices.

    Makes 4 burgers.
