1 16 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 slice red onion, diced small
1 carrot, shredded and diced small
1/2-1 fresh jalapeno pepper (depending on your heat tolerance), diced small
1 whole portabello mushroom, diced small
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
1/2 cup crushed stone ground wheat crackers (I use Back to Nature-Organic stoneground wheats)
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
salt and black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, smashing the garbanzo beans with the back of your spoon while mixing.

Form mixture into 4 patties.

Place on wax paper lined baking sheet and place sheet in freezer just until patties are frozen.

I grill these up on my George Foreman but you can alson fry them up in a cooking spray coated non stick pan until brown and crispy and cooked through. YUM!!

Serve on whole wheat hamburger buns with the condiment of your choice. (I like mayo and hot sauce, but that's just me, lol).

I made these today off the top of my head. I didn't see any reason to buy premade veggie burgers because I didn't want the fillers and other additives they put in.
