Pinto Bean Rice Burgers (DF, GF)

These burgers do fall apart pretty easily.  They hold up better if they are a little thinner and cooked a little longer.

2 cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cilantro
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp minced jar garlic
1 bell pepper, chopped (I used 1/2 red and 1/2 green)
1 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes  (I use Now Foods)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil

In a bowl, mash the pinto beans to desired texture.  I keep a lot of the beans whole.  Mix in all the rest of the ingredients.

Form into patties and cook.  I cook them on my    Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler for about 20 minutes.  If you want to bake them in the oven, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.

Be full of joy in the Lord always.  I will say again, be full of joy.
