What You’ll Need:

  • 1 c dry rice
  • 1 large onion peeled & cut into chunks
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 5-7oz jar pesto*
  • 2 eggs
  • OPTIONAL: 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • Desired fixings: Think…pickles spinach, lettuce, sprouts, salsa, tomato, onion, mustard, avocado, cheese, a bun or wrap…whatever your heart desires!


  • Cook rice in a rice cooker or on the stovetop in lightly salted water, according to package instructions.
  • Meanwhile, prepare remaining ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender. Puree.
  • Add cooked rice to food processor/blender. Pulse to mix—you’ll want the rice still have texture, so don’t puree!
  • Heat griddle or large skillet to medium high heat.
  • Using a 1/2 c size measuring cup, scoop mixture directly from the blender/processor and form into patties with your hands. Transfer patties directly onto hot griddle. Cook on each side for about 4 minutes.
  • Serve burgers with desired fixings and be so happy!


*Cooked burgers freeze well, too!
*If allergens are a concern, check ingredient label to ensure the variety you choose is free of soy and egg ingredients.
