Where's-the-beef bean burgers (Diabetic)


1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup no-salt-added ketchup
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
2 dashes cayenne pepper
2 green onions, finely chopped
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons corn oil


Combine rinsed and drained pinto and black beans in a large bowl; mash well using a potato masher. Stir in oats, egg substitute, ketchup, garlic powder, liquid smoke,
cayenne pepper, and green onions; mix well. Allow mixture to stand 15 minutes to
thicken, then shape into 5 (4-inch) patties approximately 1/2-inch in thickness.
Coat a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add oil, and warm over medium to medium-high heat. Add burgers and cook 23 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned; turn using a large spatula to prevent burgers from breaking apart. Serve
on whole wheat buns topped with favorite burger toppings.
