I pureed bean burger ingredients too long; now they're wet glop. What to do?

Using Mark Bittman's basic bean burger recipe, I threw everything -- two cups of beans (pinto and chickpeas), an onion, an egg, half a small zucchini, half a cup of oats, some chili powder -- in my too-small food processor. I had to process it for a while in order to get everything on top chopped, which I think is why the mush wound up WAY too wet and gloppy. Or maybe it's because I didn't sufficiently drain the beans. In any case, I can't shape anything with it.

Draining the mixture in a sieve doesn't seem to be doing anything. Can anybody recommend what, other than oats, I could add to stiffen up the mixture so I can shape it into something? Or maybe what I could make, instead of burgers, with the mixture? I'm up for anything except deep-frying.

Thanks for your help!
