I have not made these tasty burgers for ages. I wanted something different on the menu this week, and after flicking through the cookery books on my shelf decided to add these. They are filling and tasty. If you do not have any fresh coriander you could use any dried spice powder that you like the flavour of.
Spinach and Rice Burgers
300g brown rice
1 onion chopped
150g frozen spinach
2.5cm fresh ginger, peeled and grated
30g fresh coriander
1 egg beaten
Freshly grated nutmeg
Put the rice and water to cover, in a saucepan bring to the boil and turn heat very low and cook until all water is absorbed and rice is nearly dry.
Heat a little oil in a sauté pan, add the onion and fry until soft, add the spinach and cook until all the moisture has evaporated. Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook for one minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool a little.
Stir the spinach mixture into the rice and add the coriander and rice. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Shape into burgers.
You can either fry these burgers in a frying pan for a few minutes in each side, or as I do cook in an oven at 180 degrees centigrade for about twenty minutes.
