Black Bean and Mushroom Burgers

I have been making a lot of burger/patty style foods for dinner lately.  I have found they are easy for my 9 month old to grasp, and my toddler enjoys eating them as well.  Most of these ingredients I already had on hand, so it was easy to cook up these black bean and mushroom burgers.  If you want more of a lumpy texture, mash the bean mixture with a potato masher or fork rather than using a food processor.
