One trick to making good bean burgers is to serve them with home-made pickles and home-made buns. For the burgers themselves, first mix the dry ingredients well: salt and pepper, a little clove, a fair amount of curry, lots of nutritional yeast, and more than you think really necessary wheat gluten. Then add the wet ingredients: cooked beans (canned or soaked-and-boiled), cooked brown rice (processed in the food processor), and grated carrot. Work the batter a bit, probably adding more dry ingredients until the consistency is good and the gluten has made everything sticky. Coat in a little olive oil, and cook through (you don't really want any raw gluten left) on a hot grill.
