Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor, pulse rice, lentils and beets for about a minute or until the mixture resembles ground meat. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, thyme, fennel, mustard, onion, garlic, egg and bread crumbs. Mix with your hands to incorporate. Refrigerate until well chilled, for one to four hours.
  2. Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Using 1/2 cup for each, form rice mixture into patties.
  3. Pour a little oil into skillet. Add patties to pan. Cook until charred on the edges and heated through, turning a few times, about 12 minutes total. (Burgers can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to three days, or frozen up to three months. Rewarm in a skillet before serving.).
  4. Serve burgers on toasted buns with condiments of choice.
