This recipe is a follow up of my post Vegan Burgers Without a Recipe. In this burger recipe I am doing exactly what I talked about in my last post; cleaning out my refrigerator. I had leftover Millet, Quinoa, and cooked beans. I threw them all in the food processor with some spices and look what happened!! I made delicious, vegan, gluten free burgers in just a few minutes. In this recipe the grains are the star and I am using the beans as a binder to hold the whole delightful mess together.
