Jeff's veggie burgers

1 can rinsed and drained kidney beans; or 1.5 cups cooked
1 cup cooked brown rice, I used brown jasmine
1 cup UN-cooked rolled oats
1 cup thawed mixed veggies; my addition (corn, carrots, peas, green beans.
2-3 T either tomato sauce or salsa, I use salsa
Spices of your choice; I now use Weber's gourmet burger, about a tablespoon.
Hand mash the beans, add the rest of the ingredients mix well, shape into patties. These work great on the foreman grill, dry frying in a pan or grilling on a bbq. They are also awesome cold on a salad the next day. They make about 4-6 depending on how big you make them. Oh and they are extremely kid friendly:O)
Don't try any other kind of bean. Jeff painstakingly tried all others and he said they just don't work like the kidney beans.
