Kale and Cannellini Bean Veggie Burgers

These Kale and Cannellini Bean Veggie Burgers are inspired by escarole and beans, except due to a lack of escarole at the supermarket, I substituted the ingredient with kale.

These burgers are simple to make and versatile; eat them on a bun, over lettuce or by themselves!
