I turned my leftover brown rice into delicious lentil and brown rice veggie burgers to reduce food waste.

Course Main Course
Cuisine Vegetarian
Servings 7 burgers


  • cups cooked lentils and brown rice
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup almond flour
  • teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 large carrot, finely chopped (about ½ cup)
  • ¼ cup parsely, roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix lentil rice with eggs, almond flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Fold in carrot and parsley.
  • Scoop mixture into patties using a 1/3-cup measuring cup; drop onto baking sheet. Leave about an inch between burgers, since they will spread while baking.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until burgers are set. Flip using a spatula. Bake for 20 to 25 more minutes. Burgers should appear darker in color when ready. Serve warm with hummus, avocado, tomato, lettuce and a whole wheat bun. Burgers can be frozen and defrosted as needed.
