• 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup carrot, finely grated
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil for cooking

Make this a DASH meal with a whole wheat bun, thick sliced tomato and sweet onion, lettuce leaf and a smear of Dijon mustard. These burgers are great with grilled or sautéed fresh asparagus spiked with garlic and olive oil. This recipe makes many burgers. Reduce the recipe by half or freeze remaining cooked burgers for a quick meal another day.
