Mash beans with a fork or potato masher until they are mostly a paste with just a few chunks. (They should look similar to refried beans.)
Add oatmeal, rice, paste, water, and spices.
Using wet hands, form into 6 burger patties.
Put patties on a clean plate and cover with foil or plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. This allows them to set and become firm.
To cook on grill: Grill 5 minutes on each side. (Do not overcook or they will be dry.)
To cook in a skillet: Cook in a non-stick skillet over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Carefully turn over. Cook 2-3 minutes more.
To cook in the Air Fryer: Cook at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until hot and a bit crispy.
To cook in oven: Preheat oven to 350. Place burgers on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over and bake 10 minutes more. Allow to rest 5 minutes.
Serve with your favorite burger condiments.
To freeze: Flash freeze by placing burgers on a cookie sheet in freezer for one hour. (This prevents them from sticking together so you can pull out one at a time.) Remove from freezer and place into a storage container or zipper bag for up to 3 months.
