Because I want to think of something else than this place...

Patrick's Bean Burgers (modified Moosewood recipe)
Makes approx. 4
Drain 1 can of black beans

Using a potato masher, mash the beans up into a thick paste

Add 1/2 tbsp each of the following: ketchup, mustard, soy sauce & balsamic vinegar, mix well

Add uncooked oatmeal (quick oats work the best, as they are a smaller cut) to mixture. Continue to add until it's approx the consistency of ground beef, stirring continuously, approx 1 cup.

Cook on a large frying non-stick frying pan, over moderately high heat, flipping every so often, until browned on both sides (just like you would a regular burger).

Good additions:
Chipotle Chili mayo (approx 1/4 tsp of ground chipotle chili powder to each tablespoon of mayo. more or less, depending on desired heat level)
Caramelized onions
Roasted garlic mayo (approx 1 clove of roasted garlic for each tablespoon of mayo)
