Ro Raggy Blueberry Burger
2 cups cooked brown lentils
1 1/2 cups cooked whole grain mix* (could just use a sticky sort of brown rice). I used leftovers from this rice blend that I purchased at Costco
1/2 cup onion, grated fine
1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs (or g/f if you like)
1/2 cup pepitas, hulled (don’t make the mistake I did once and use unhulled–very prickly)
In a food processor, blitz
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
2 tsp umi plum paste (use 1 T soy sauce as substitute)
Add to lentil mixture. Stir to combine.
Dust top of bowl with brown rice flour. Using as much flour as you need to handle the burger mixture, form into balls–somewhere between tennis and ping-pong. Put on a lightly oiled nonstick pan over medium heat and press down into patty shape with a flat turner. There should be some sizzling when you set them on. Cook patties 3-4 minutes per side, until well brown. They should hold together well, but they are still fragile. Flip and do the same on the other side.
