Rice & Bean Patties

Rice & Bean Patties

Serves 12 | Prep Time 40 minutes | Cook Time 15 minutes


15 ounces Eden Brown Rice & Kidney Beans, 1 can
or any Eden Rice & Beans

15 ounces Eden Brown Rice & Pinto Beans, 1 can
or any Eden Rice & Beans

2 cups organic whole wheat bread crumbs

1/2 cup onions, small diced

1/2 cup red bell pepper, small diced

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1/3 cup organic sweet corn, fresh or frozen

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced, or 1 T. dried parsley

3 to 4 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for frying burgers


Mix all ingredients together, except the oil, in a medium mixing bowl, cover and set aside for 30 minutes allowing the bread crumbs to absorb moisture from the rice and vegetables, firming up the mixture.

Place 1 tablespoon oil in a medium cast iron skillet, heavy stainless steel skillet or a griddle. Heat the oil. Take a handful of the rice mixture and form a ball, then flatten slightly forming a round, thick burger. Place in the hot oil. Form 3 more burgers and place in the skillet. Cook over medium heat until a crispy, brown crust forms on the bottom of the burgers. Flip over and cook until browned and crispy. Remove and repeat the process until all of the burgers are done, adding oil to the skillet as needed.

Serve as is with Eden Mustard, on a bed of lettuce with your favorite salsa, or on a whole wheat bun with your favorite toppings.

Yields: 12 burgers
