I had no idea what to expect when I made these burgers. I sort of threw some things in a bowl that I had in my cupboard and then mixed it all together. I was pleasantly surprised with the result, they actually taste pretty damn good!
I have to say for vegan burgers they are so easy to make. No special equipment needed, just a bowl! So anyone can make them and enjoy.
- 1/2 cup brown rice
- 1/2 cup brown lentils
- 2 small potatoes
- 1 carrot (grated)
- 3 tbsp tahini
- 1tbsp cumin seeds
- 1tsp ground coriander
- Firstly you need to cook your rice, lentils and potatoes. I used mixed rice which was a combination of brown and wild rice, but only brown will also do. I cooked my rice, lentils and potatoes all separately. I boiled the potatoes but cooking them in the oven would work.
- Once everything has cooked and cooled, add them all to a big mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes which works really well to combine the rice and lentils. Add the spices and grated carrot and mix well. Feel free to add any other spices or herbs, or pepper and salt! Taste it and see what it needs.
- Finally add the tahini as the final ingredient to bind everything together so you can make burger shapes out of them. The mixture will be pretty sticky but this is ok. Use your hands to roll into burger shapes and put on a tray.
- Bake in the oven (180degrees) for 15 minutes.
I had mine in lettuce with some baked squash. Pretty damn good I might say.
