READY IN: 5hrs 15mins
YIELD: 4 Burgers




  • In a food processor, pulse rice, lentils and beets for about a minute or until the mixture resembles ground meat. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, thyme, fennel, mustard, onion, garlic, egg and bread crumbs. Mix with your hands to incorporate. Refrigerate until well chilled, for one to four hours.
  • Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Using 1/2 cup for each, form rice mixture into patties.
  • Pour a little oil into skillet. Add patties to pan. Cook until charred on the edges and heated through, turning a few times, about 12 minutes total. (Burgers can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to three days, or frozen up to three months. Rewarm in a skillet before serving.).
  • Serve burgers on toasted buns with condiments of choice.
