Mixed bean patties, quick easy and healthy

I was supposed to have this post up last weekend but with my hubby home there not much time to waste. Well it’s not wasting time but I make an effort to stay away from my computer so we get lots a good quality time together.
Beans were on special so I bought up!!! Hubby loves vegetarian burgers so I googled. Found this recipe on and modified it. I made burgers for the boys with them but I think they would be much better served with a salad for a grain free meal.  A single pattie would make a great snack.
You can find the original recipe here
