Parmesan Rice Burger

Parmesan Rice Burger

Makes 2 burgers

These burgers have a very nice cheese taste and are easy to make.

1 cup cooked brown rice, set aside until cool enough to handle

3 Tablespoons vegan bread crumbs

2 Tablespoons vegan parmesan cheese

¼ cup (4 Tablespoons) vegan shredded mozzarella or Monterey jack

¼ cup (4 Tablespoons) marinara sauce plus some for topping after cooked

2 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

2 Tablespoons warm water

1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch or egg replacer *

Olive oil spray

1- Preheat toaster oven to 350 degrees. Line the baking tray with aluminum foil and spray generously with oil spray.

2- Mix all ingredients together except water and cornstarch in a bowl.

3- In a small bowl mix together the water and cornstarch or egg replacer and using a small whisk or fork make sure there are no lumps and it is thoroughly dissolved. Then add to the rice mixture and mix well.

4- Form into two burgers. Place burgers on tray and bake for 20 minutes.

5- Open oven and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes.

6- Top with warmed marinara sauce and enjoy. (About 4 tablespoons each burger or to taste)

G Notes- You can save the other burger in a container in the refrigerator for later. To reheat the burger place it in a microwave on top of a paper towel. Microwave for 2 minutes. (microwave times vary). Top with marinara.

Serving ideas- Steamed veggies go nice with this burger. You could also make a salad.

* Egg replacer has a powder consistency and can be found in an organic or health food store. The Brand I use is by Ener- G.
