Do not, I repeat do not tell my kids I served them a bean burger! Not that they would complain, considering they ate every last ounce but still, if they knew it was a bean burger they would have rolled their eyes even before they took a bite.
That’s all it takes sometimes with kids, you mention one ingredient and you get the “ewww, yuck” Eye roll here, grimace over there. Kids are tricky, so Mom’s need to be sneaky. I’m one sneaky Mom let me tell you. I feed them zucchini brownies, carrot muffins, even carrot and eggplant patties! They didn’t even blink an eye when I made their french fries out of squash! If you don’t tell them, they will never know! Or at least don’t mention anything until after they ate it all. ha
Meet the Bean Burger which is Diabetic friendly !
In a food processor, combine the beans, 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs, onion, nuts, basil and garlic. Process until mixture is coarsely chopped and holds together.
Serve on a whole wheat bun with spinach and some light ranch salad dressing. Makes about 4 burgers, but the recipe can easily be doubled!
