First, the recipe was simple enough. Use refried beans to mix with crushed tortilla chips, salsa and diced onions. Form into burger shapes and let chill for a 1/2 hour or so.
My question is thus: Do I need to cook the refried beans first and then mix, or can I use them straight from the can? They said chill, but I imagine that meant freeze?
I see a lot of bean burger recipes that call for eggs, and since I am not in the habit of using eggs, is the tofu water thing a good replacement for this sort of dish? Any advice on the subject would be much appreciated, since I haven't made a bean burger before and the idea is really really appealing. Thanks in advance!!
