Almost Burger and Chips


Dinner tonight was burger and chips. More or less…

I took my inspiration for the burgers from a recipe book Jane has out of the library at the moment called Meatless. Admittedly it called for brown rice and chickpeas, neither of which were in our cupboards but I knocked up something in that range using red rice and white beans. Mixed with chopped shallots, garlic and parsley and bound together, it was formed into patties to fry. The mixture didn’t hold together brilliantly but had a decent taste. Something to experiment again.

Chips were from sweet potatoes, peeled, chipped, parboiled and roasted and pitta bread stood in for a burger bun (or lettuce as the suggestion from the book). Not quite as described but actually decidedly tasty and enough to keep me going until (dead animal based) sausages for breakfast tomorrow!
