Step 1

In a large bowl, mash beans with a hand masher and mix in oats, cooked rice, spices, and 2 Tbsp tomato sauce/salsa. Form into 4 patties and allow to sit uncovered in refrigerator for at least 10 minutes to set. Grill or broil on each side until golden brown.

Step 2

For the special vegan sauce, mix together veganaise, the 1/4 cup salsa, and the 1/4 tomato sauce in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate.

Cooking vegan meals brings such excitement and richness to my life! The simple things in life are so beautiful to me. I love meeting new people. Welcome to my plant-based journey!
