DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan, combine rice and water. Bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer until all the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add frozen veggies and cook for 1 minutes or so to soften. (This is also the stage where you would cook onions and garlic if you would like to add them!).
  • Remove veggies to a large bowl. Stir in rice, oats, walnuts, cheese, flour, basil, salt and pepper into vegetable mixture. Add the egg and stir until starchy, about 1 minute. (Make sure to beat the egg BEFORE adding to the other ingredients. Otherwise your patties won't bind as well.).
  • Using a 1/3 cup dry measure, scoop and form mixture into 8 patties.
  • In the same large skillet you cooked the veggies, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat. Cook patties in oil until browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn over and continue cooking until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve however you like - I suggest inside of pita bread.
