Bean and Grain Burgers

  • Yield 10 servings

These fiber-rich Bean and Grain Burgers are not only tastier than typical burgers, but healthier as well.


1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 (19-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed, and ground or coarsely chopped
3 slices whole-wheat bread, blended in food processor
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup tamari
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/3 cup raw wheat germ
10 multi-grain hamburger rolls


  1. Sauté onion in vegetable oil. Then mix all ingredients, except wheat germ, and form into patties. Coat each patty with raw wheat germ, and grill on a non-stick surface. Serve on multi-grain roll with your favorite toppings.
