Lentil Rice Burgers
Yield: 6 servings
1/2 c lentils, cooked
1 sm sweet potato, peeled, cooked
8 spinach leaves, rinsed
1/2 c mushrooms, fresh, chopped
1/2 c dry bread crumbs
1 ts soy sauce
1 tb cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 c white rice cooked; cooled
Combine rice, lentils, sweet potato, spinach and mushrooms in a
large bowl. Add soy sauce, salt and pepper. Add bread crumbs and
cilantro and mix well. Refrigerate for 15 to 39 minutes. Form
mixture into 6 to 8 patties. Oil a vegetable grill generously--these
patties tend to stick. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until
medium brown. Makes 6 to 8 patties.
Variation: Instead of burgers, form mixture into small balls.
Grill until browned. Serve as a snack with a dipping sauce or add
to pasta with your favorite sauce.
