Substitute your burger patty for one of these tasty vegetarian options at your next cookout or serve them mini style with a yogurt dipping sauce, the choice is yours. Low in calories, these rice burgers are a great alternative to beef burgers.

Ingredients

6 servings
250 grams rice (World, Oriente Paella, or Paella rice)
250 grams frozen peas
olive oil (to taste)
1 onions (small)
2 teaspoons spices (paella, or saffron)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
1/4 red pepper
salt (to taste)
ground black pepper
2 eggs
4 tablespoons flour
margarine (to taste)
fresh parsley (to taste)

Directions

1Boil the rice in salted water, when half cooked, add the peas.
2When the rice is cooked, remove from heat, pass through a sieve, and wash with cold water to completely remove the gum from the rice.
3In a frying pan, heat a little olive oil, add onion, pepper, and paella spice, and mix well. If you do not have the paella spice, use the saffron so the rice turns yellow.
4Add the tomatoes, and let brown. If the mixture is too dry, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time, until the sauce is moist enough.
5In a bowl, mix the rice and the sauce.
6Add the eggs, one by one.
7Add the flour.
8Then shape small balls, and fry in a non-sticking frying pan with a little margarine. When browned on one side, turn over very carefully to brown the other side.
9Remove from pan, garnish with fresh parsley.
10Serve with a yogurt sauce and a small salad.
