Homemade Veggie Sliders

I used to have an old roommate who loved veggie burgers. When I first saw one I thought how could that be any good, but I tried it and really liked it. I have recently decided to reduce my meat intake. I don't personally have anything against meat, but I felt like it was taking up a large portion of my diet. Will and I have started adding a couple of veggie dishes to our weekly dinner mix. I have really enjoyed it because I am learning how to make a variety of other foods. Without further ado here is the veggie burger/sliders.

1 can of kidney beans, strained, and rinsed
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of flour
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup of mushrooms
1/2 cup of onion
1/2 cup of carrots shredded
1/2 cup of red bell pepper
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbsp of Worcestershire
1/2 tsp of salt
English muffin
I made some substitutions, but I will
tell you more about that in a minute.
You want it to be sticky but not too sticky.
I would put half the beans in the food
processor and  leave the other  whole.

Cook on medium heat for 6-7 minutes.

Here is the final product. I added avocado, cheese and sour

Here are the changes I made. I didn't have carrots or red bell pepper so I substituted an orange bell pepper instead.  I used bran instead of oats because that is what I had on hand. I put the bran in the food processor.

The sliders turned out really good. Next time I think I will trade the swiss cheese for some feta (mix it in with all the other ingredients). We had left overs and ate the others with a fried egg on top the next day which was really delicious.
