Ingredients

1 15- to 16-ounce can cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
¾ cup soft whole-wheat breadcrumbs (1 slice) , divided
½ cup chopped onion (1 medium)
¼ cup broken walnuts, toasted if desired
2 tablespoons coarsely snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
2 cloves garlic, quartered
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 whole-grain hamburger buns, split and toasted
2 tablespoons light ranch salad dressing
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
½ medium tomato, sliced

Instructions

  • In a food processor, combine beans, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, onion, walnuts, basil and garlic. Cover and process until the mixture is coarsely chopped and holds together.

  • Shape the bean mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Place the remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs in a shallow dish. Carefully brush both sides of each patty with oil. Dip the patties into the breadcrumbs, turning to coat.

  • Preheat a grill pan or large skillet over medium heat. Add the patties to the pan. Cook until heated through, 10 to 12 minutes, turning the patties once halfway through cooking. (Reduce heat to medium-low if the patties brown too quickly.)

  • Spread cut sides of bun bottoms with ranch dressing. Top with the burgers, spinach, tomato slices and bun tops.
