My Meatless Mondays - June 26th - It Looks Like a Burger......
It Looks Like a Burger - Basmati Burgers
2 1/2 cups (or more) vegetable broth
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat.
Add onion and mushrooms; sauté until tender, about 12 minutes.
Add nuts. Mix well.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer until rice is almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.
Using moistened hands, divide rice mixture into 6 equal portions.
Press each portion into 2-inch-diameter patty.
Place in prepared baking pan.
over; chill at least 4 hours. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.)
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 3 rice cakes to skillet. Cook until each side begins to brown.
Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and rice cakes.
Return to baking pan. I found these to be rather fragile so be very gentle. I ended up pushing them together again, if pieces fell off. I would an egg to bind this, next time.
This is going to be one of my favorites.
