Veggie Burger: Step 1

It is always better to purchase whole-grain buns rather than the ones available in the store: reason being, the use of preservatives. Preheat your oven to about 350 degrees and gently spread half can of beans on a foil-lined baking sheet. Allow it to bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
