The sound pounder - it's a fine day

Quarter Pounder Beet Burger   Print Prep time 15 mins Cook time 25 mins Total time 40 mins   This burger patty has very crunchy and nutty flavour. I make a large batch, almost double the recipe and freeze them. It's very inexpensive and much healthier than store-bought ones.

**If you are using sprouted beans , no need to cook. Just add as it is.

Lightly tweaked from PPK Author: Sonia Recipe type: entrée, Main Serves: 10-12 patties Ingredients

  1. In food processor bowl pulse down the cooked brown rice, shredded beets and sprouted beans (or lentils) few times until well combined. You should still see a texture of rice and beets. Transfer to a wide mixing bowl and add in all other ingredients. Mix well and taste. Adjust the seasoning.
  2. If your mixture is still wet and difficult to form a patty put it in fridge for ½ hour or so.
  3. A non-stick baking paper or parchment paper or silicon baking mat is very helpful here. Line a baking sheet or large tray with non-stick baking paper or silicon mat. I used 3 inch cookie cutter for uniform patties. Use anything like ring mold or round cookie cutter. Or shape them with hands. Form all mixture into patties.
  4. My patties were still wet and difficult to handle. I put them all in freezer with tray for ½ hour or so. This way they firmed up nicely and handled easily.
  5. I used my favourite Dosa tawa (griddle) but use any non-stick or cast-iron flat pan or griddle whatever you have on hand. Cook patties with a little oil for 5-7 minutes each side on medium heat.
  6. Using Dosa tawa I was able to cook 5-6 patties at the same time without crowding them. They came out nicely charred and perfect.
  7. These patties goes well in sandwich or burger. Serve immediately with your choice of toppings and sauce. We enjoyed our burgers with sliced avocado (not in picture), green salad mix and hot chili sauce.
Notes If you're not serving them soon, transfer the cooked patties on cooling rack and let them cool down completely. Store in air-tight container and freeze well.

And when the White House kitchen staff couldn’t match the satisfaction of a quarter-pounder with cheese (no pickles, extra ketchup) and a fried apple pie, it was Schiller, bodyguard and Trump whisperer, who would head down New York Avenue to McDonald’s on a stealth fast food run.
