Ultimate Veggie Burger

The star here is a simple can of beans -- a protein-packed, earth-friendly, and nearly fat-free food. One note: These burgers hold their shape better if refrigerated before and/or after forming. But, if you're in a rush, no worries -- the flavor won't be affected if you skip the chilling.
