Cheap and Easy Veggie Burgers

This recipe makes six to eight decent sized burgers.

1 cup diced veggies--cooked ones seem to work best
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup cooked beans, any kind
1 egg
2 Tbsp bread or cracker crumbs
salt, pepper, and other spices of your choice
oil for cooking--about 2-3 Tbsp total

Mix rice and beans, mashing them as you mix. Mix in vegetables, egg, and spices. Use your hands to shape the mixture into balls. Roll the balls in bread crumbs, then flatten against your palms. Fry in a medium skillet for 2-3 minutes per side, until done. Serve on whole wheat rolls.
