Veggie Bean Burgers

I was happy with how these turned out. This recipe makes a lot of burgers, so you'll have leftovers for lunch the next day.

1 onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
4 stalks celery, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can black beans, drained
1 can navy beans, drained
1 TBSP ground coriander
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2-3 TBSP hummus
1 cup rolled oats
4 - 6 slices day old bread, pulsed in food processor to crumbs

Sautee onion through garlic until softened. Add onion mixture to food processor with beans, coriander, yeast, hummus, oats and half the bread crumbs. Pulse until well mixed. Place the rest of the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Form bean mixture into patties, dredge in bread crumbs and brown in a pan coated with cooking spray or a light coating of olive oil. Serve as you would any other burger. Makes 8-10 burgers.
