Lentil rice burgers #1

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup White rice; cooked, cooled
½ cup Lentils; cooked
1 small Sweet potato; peeled, cooked; minced
8 Spinach leaves; rinsed, blanched; finely shredded
½ cup Mushrooms; fresh, chopped
1 teaspoon Soy sauce; low sodium
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup Bread crumbs; dry
1 tablespoon Cilantro; finely chopped

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.
