When I threw these veggie burgers together, I admittedly didn’t expect the textures & flavors to turn out as well as they did. I was beyond pleasantly surprised–these burgers are a real keeper!

My inspiration for these came from wanting to incorporate more legumes into my little one’s diet. And, boy was I happy that he loved these as much as I did!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice cooked
  • 1 cup green lentils cooked
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin ground
  • 1 tsp coriander freshly ground
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp ground Hungarian paprika
  • 1 egg or 1 flax egg for vegan option*
  • 4 tbs gluten free quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • In a food processor combine: rice, lentils, sunflower seeds, onion, garlic & spices. Process well. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Then add: egg (or flax egg*), oats, and oil. Mix & mash with a spatula until all is relatively smooth. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Remove from fridge and shape into patties (this should make 4 burger-sized patties).
  • Heat a greased skillet on med-high heat & cook patties until browned, about 5 minutes each side.
  • These are great on their own, served on a bed of greens or burger-style on any gluten free bread of your choice!

Notes

To make a flax egg: combine 1 tbs of ground flax seed w/ 3 tbs of water and let sit for 10 minutes or until beginning to thicken–add to recipe as you would any egg.
