Sweet Potato + Brown Rice Burgers

Sweet Potato Burgers

Difficulty: Easy Makes 4 Burgers are LIT but when I eat them, you'll usually find me chomping on some kind of mock meat variety. Every now and then I like to tuck in to a true "veggie burger" and this one is so freaking easy you'll find yourself doing the very same. Prep 'em in advance, pop 'em in the fridge and with a little salad and/or a bun you've got a quick lunch or dinner option ready to go. Ingredients 300g sweet potato 1 cup cooked brown rice (ain't no shame in using microwave rice - so quick!) 1 small red onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley stalks 1/4 cup nutritional yeast 1 tablespoon soy sauce ...

Brown Fried Rice

Difficulty: Easy Serves 4-6 Usually, I find rice a waste of valuable stomach real estate but one of the few exceptions is my brown fried rice.

Crispy Tempeh and Brown Rice Sushi

Difficulty: Easy-Medium Makes 2 rolls I'm trying to cut down on carbs as a part of my health kick but sometimes you just gotta have sushi. I prefer brown rice to white rice anyhow, so it's a much healthier decision for this dish. The tempeh is grilled to make it super crispy without the need for frying while the cucumber and avocado add different textures to the filling. I don't use a sushi mat for rolling but feel free to do so if that's your bag. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar 1/3 packet tempeh 2 nori sheets 1/2 avocado, sliced 1/2 small cucumber, julienned 1 tablespoon sesame seeds Soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger to serve Method Mix the rice wine vinegar with the brown rice...

Pumpkin and Brown Rice Mini Burgers

These Pumpkin and Brown Rice Mini Burgers are nested on a homemade bun but if you're not up to that challenge, you can always make larger burgers with store-bought buns or use mini ones if you can get them. As a special bonus Halloween treat, I've added my spooky topper template for you to use. So get cookin', if you dare...
