Wild Black Rice Burger Patties with Dover Sole

It’s been a little while since we posted last, so very much has happened – the most important and sad is that we have lost our boy Tiger, who you see on our last post. We have not had the heart or mindset until now to think of other things. We will miss him forever! …


Thank you all for you patience in waiting for this post and thank you for your continued support and love.

Today we would like to feature a new spin on how you serve a burger, your style and burger patty of choice. This particular burger is accompanied by a warm kale salad, which we will share soon, protein is dover sole, separately sauteed onions to top your patty with before stacking the fish or beef filler.

Rice patty

Saute one large yellow onion with a pinch of sea salt, black pepper and a few coriander seeds. Saute and set aside, keep them warm.

Boil 1 cup of dry black rice in 2 parts of water with a little pinch of sea salt, bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a little simmer. Stir once or twice and allow to set.

In a medium mixing bowl add cooked black wild rice, one egg, pinch of turmeric, a little paprika, fresh cracked pepper, pinch or salt, a tiny pinch of Garam Marsala and dice up 1/2 tablespoon of pickled jalapenos. Use pickled peppers because this will help in keeping your patty together better.

These patties are sensitive and you do have to take care to cook them thoroughly and ensure that they are rounded out and can’t break out. Work with a spatula after you pour them into the pan to round them out.

Whip the rice and egg and all other ingredients mix them well. Heat a cast iron pan with some ghee or coconut oil until the pan is really hot. Pour in the desired pancake size of rice mix into the hot pan and allow to cook for a minute or so, before you flip the rice patty for the other side.

It really is that easy. Set the patties aside on a paper towel.  Now begin to build your favorite burger.

Ours here is depicted with the warm kale salad, patty has organic dijon mustard lightly smeared on it and topped with the wonderful onions, followed by the dover sole, covered with the top patty and wrapped in your favorite tissue for presentation and enjoyment.

These are truly delicious – please give these a try.
