Mushroom-Kale Veggie Burgers!

Nutrient density is important, especially for picky kid eaters!  This burger recipe really did the trick!  All the ingredients are put through the food processor and then combined into a really great burger!

1 head organic kale
1 1/2 cups mushrooms (any would work)
12 oz organic red beans (any bean would work)
1 organic carrot
2 cups gluten free oats
1/2 organic onion
1 garlic clove
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup organic ketchup
2 tsp brown mustard
salt and pepper to taste

In food processor, process the kale until it is in tiny pieces and set aside.  Then process the mushrooms, breaking them into small pieces as well,  and mix with kale.  Process the carrot and mix with kale/mushroom mixture.  Process the onion and garlic and add to the kale/mushroom mixture.  Process the beans and add to the mixture.  Lastly, process the oats, but don't let them get too fine.  Add the oats to the mixture and stir in the remaining ingredients.    Add salt and pepper to taste.  With wet hands, mold the mixture into patties.  If your mixture is too wet, add more oats.  If it feels to dry, add water a tablespoon at a time.  The patties should not be too dry.

Place patties on a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with oil OR use parchment paper.  Bake at 400, flipping once, for about 15-20 minutes.  When both sides of burger have browned they are ready.
