Veggie burger with rice-carrot-patty

That's one of the favorite recipes of my significant other, even though he's still eats meat! Although he likes is patties traditionally with white hamburger buns and loads of ketchup and mayo (and it works well together), I wanted to share a healthier alternative with whole wheat buns and avocado cream. I hope you enjoy! :)

Veggie Burger information
course country time difficulty
main course USA 40min medium

For 6 patties

imperial metric
3/4 cup 150g rice
2 tbsp 30 ml soy sauce
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup 100g walnuts
1 cup 150g grated cheese
2 carrots
2 eggs
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
pinch salt
1/2-1 cup ~100g breadcrumbs or flour

other Ingredients
6 buns (I used pumpkin seed)
2 handful arugola
3 tomatoes, sliced
2 avocado
dash lemon juice
pinch salt
1 red onion
6 slices cheese (I used aged gouda)
6 tsp spicy salsa

  • put rice in a small pot and fill up with twice as much cold water (1.5cup/360ml)
  • add 2tbsp soja sauce and bring to boil
  • once the rice boils, bring down the heat to the lowest level, put the lid on and let it simmer for about 15min
  • in the meantime, put walnuts, garlic, onion and carrots (in smaller pieces) in a food processor and cut into small pieces and put everyting in a big bowl
  • add cheese and the spices
  • check if the rice is done after the 15min, if not, leave it for another 5min
  • if the rice is done put it to the other ingredients in the bowl and mix well; the cheese should melt a little
  • add two eggs and as much breadcrumbs or flour to get a nice doughy consistence
  • leave it for about 20min, so the starch can work

  • form the dough to patties, dredge them in breadcrumbs if you want and brown them in a pan

  • For the avocado mush:
    • cut avocado in half, remove seed and skin
    • mash with a fork until smooth and season with lemon juice and salt

    I know everyone has their own way to assemble a burger, but this is my way to do it :):
    • I slice the buns and put them on a baking sheet and heat the oven
    • I put one tbsp salsa on the lower halfes and garnish them with the onion slices
    • after frying the patties a put them on the lower halfs and put the cheese on top
    • now everythings comes into the oven for about 5min until the cheese is melted and the buns are warm (still top and bottom not assembled)
    • now I top the cheese with avocado sauce, tomatoes and salad and put on the top half
