Gluten Free Burger/Cutlet

I've been trying to come up with a burger recipe that everyone in my family, (husband, three kids and myself), would all enjoy.  Recently I made one that, not only tasted as great as a burger, but also would work great as a cutlet in classic "comfort food recipes".  Here is what I came up with:

15 ounces Navy Beans
1.5 C Gluten Free Oats
1 large onion
1 large carrot
2 garlic gloves
2 tsp brown mustard
2 tbs ketchup
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
1/4 pink Himalayan Sea Salt
1/2 white wine (optional) 

In a food processor, put the carrot, peeled onion, and peeled garlic.  Process until all are minced.  Set aside.  Next, put the oats into the processor and pulse until the oats break down, you don't want them to be super fine, just broken down a little bit.  In a saute pan, saute the onion, carrot and garlic mixture in the white wine, or water if you prefer.  Saute until the mixture becomes soft.

Drain and rinse the navy beans.  Pulse them in the food processor, leaving them a little lumpy.  Then combine the beans, oats, and carrot/onion/garlic mixture.  Then add the rest of your ingredients and mix well.
