Black Bean Brown Rice Burgers

I have tried a few veggie burger recipes and they usually crumble and don't stay together. I found this recipe and made some changes. Mostly because I like adding veggies when possible because it can be hard to eat enough in a day. Again I didn't take pictures because I was being lazy and was trying to get them done fast.

I also stopped working out as soon as I get home after work so I'll be getting back into that. I started a part time course in January so I'm in class once a week and I've been making the mistake of not working out on Wednesday and then I end up missing Thursday as well sin
