“Healthy burgers, crammed with tasty beans, nutty-tasting rice, and homely veggies make a tasteful meal.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the carrot, onion, celery, garlic and leek in 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, until soft - this should take about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Add the kidney beans and rice and mash everything together. Scatter over the parsley, and season to taste. Cool a little before shaping the mixture into round patties, about 2 1/2in in diameter and 1/2in thick.
  3. Heat a griddle over a medium heat with the remaining olive oil. Fry the vegetable burgers on both sides for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden.
  4. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil. Break in the egg and poach in simmering water until the white is just set.
  5. Place 2 burgers in the centre of each plate and top with a poached egg. Drizzle with chili oil before serving.
