Beet and Brown Rice Sliders

    Great flavor and texture, though these veggie sliders need a little more binder: some burger fell out after the first bite. We may try 2 eggs in the patties next time, or some vital wheat gluten. Otherwise, a delicious and very colorful summer weeknight dinner!

    We LOVED these sliders (and the others in the same article)...but of course we would, because Richard Blais is our favorite Top Chef contestant ever : ). I found pre-cooked beets at Trader Joe's, which really helped cut back on prep time. And I used a sourdough baguette so I could just slice the rounds and not have the scraps left--it did mean the crust was on and they got a little crunchy. I'd toast them less next time. I also swapped Havarti cheese for the goat cheese because I don't like goat. A great and filling vegetarian meal with a salad!

    Not bad at all...and quite interesting. I agree that a bit more binder could be called for and I ended up with 7 1/2 sliders, but otherwise these came together just fine. To cut back on calories I had one slider on a (whole-grain) bun and one au naturale, with a green salad on the side. Provided I could cook the rice and beets well in advance, I would certainly make these again.

    really tasty an interesting combination. We will only Make again if we could find pre cooked beets, preparing them added about 30 minutes to the recipe prep time.
