Stirring the rice as it cooks releases the starch that helps hold the veggie patties together. Want to go beyond vegetarian? Top these burgers with grilled shrimp or sausage.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir in rice. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly, 15 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.

Step 2

Mash red kidney beans in a large bowl with a fork or pastry blender. Stir in bell pepper, next 5 ingredients, and cooked rice until well blended. Shape mixture into 6 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.

Step 3

Cook 3 patties in 1 1/2 Tbsp. hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 5 minutes on each side or until golden. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and patties.

Step 4

Stir together mayonnaise, Creole mustard, green onions, and parsley. Place 1 lettuce leaf on each bread slice; top each with 1 patty and desired amount of mayonnaise mixture.

Super yummy and brill way to start veggie lifestyle, as it's really filling just as a beef burger would be. I'm from England so I kind of guesstimated the measurements and made my own creole seasoning/sauce, from recipes I found online. Great recipe to play around with :-)

These are tasty and satisfying - perfect for Meatless Monday. The Creole mustard sauce really makes the dish. Served with cajun-spiced oven fries and a tomato salad.
