Summer is burger season. To reduce your meat consumption, nothing beats a homemade veggie burger. Made from beans, chickpeas, lentils, oats, nuts or sweet potatoes, the choice of flavors — and textures — is as vast as a summer camp repertoire of songs.

For 4 burgers

These burgers can be frozen, preferably before cooking.

To cook the rice: In a small saucepan, place 1/2 cup (100g) brown rice. Add 1 cup (250ml) water, cover and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Let stand 15 minutes covered.
