If you're a vegetarian, this is hands-down the best burger you'll have. Even meat eaters order this one at Houston's. The best thing about this burger is that it doesn't taste like a burger (I hate anything pretending to be meat), and it also doesn't taste like oats or bread between a bun. (Like so many other veggie burgers). This is not an exact recipe, but it's a version of what our chef friend from Houston's gave us. We have tweaked it to the recipe listed here using all of the Houston's ingredients. Careful with the Jalapeños or it can get way too spicy. Caution with the prunes too, or it can end up tasting like jam which is just gross. As for the glaze, we tend to wing it every time so if anyone has the units for this, let us know. The cooking time and temp is also something we just watch for each batch. So basically, these are delicious but still in progress. There is no egg in their recipe!
- 3⁄4 cup yellow onion, minced
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown rice

- 4 ounces minced beets
