Add the onion and garlic to the bowl of a food processor and pulse 10 times. Add everything else except the beans and process for 1 minute.
Add the beans to the bowl and pulse repeatedly until the mixture reaches a meaty texture, about 15-20 times. (Don't turn it into a paste!) Add additional bread crumbs if too wet, or water/stock if too dry. You want it to be the consistency of ground beef.
Get your hands damp and shape the mixture into four patties about 1 inch thick. Place them on a plate lined with parchment or foil and chill them for 20 minutes. Do NOT skip this step!
Liberally spray a skillet with oil and cook patties over medium heat, 5-7 minutes per side, until browned. Or grill 3 minutes per side. Serve garnished as you would any burger. Enjoy!
