      1/2   c            Minced green onions.
    1 1/2   tb           Minced garlic.
    2       tb           White wine/stock
   29       oz           Cooked drained pinto beans
      3/4   c            Cracker meal or bread crumbs
    2                    Egg whites
      1/2   c            Chopped fresh parsley
    2       tb           Seasoned rice vinegar
      1/2   ts           Italian seasonings (oregano,
                         -basil, etc.)
 
   Preheat oven 350 degrees. Saute onions/garlic in
   stock/white wine. Combine with beans, cracker meal,
   egg whites, parsley, vinegar, seasonings. Mash well
   with fork until blended, but not entirely smooth.
   (Here I depart from recipe...I make up a bunch of
   hamburger sized patties, freeze some, refridge some,
   and cook them as needed for about 20 minutes in a
   toaster oven...I know they are done when the egg/bread
   crumbs are brown and the patty is a bit dry.  I find
   this basic recipe can absorb many, many changes.I've
   used white beans, black beans, whatever, sauteed
   mushrooms, hot sauce, catsup, etc. The main thing is
   to get a good texture/cohesiveness in the final
   product, so it sticks together. Have fun!)
