What to do

  • 1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Cook rice in a small pot until slightly undercooked (don’t cook it too much, as it will continue to soften in the oven).

  • 2. In a pan, heat a splash of olive oil, add chopped onion and garlic and sauté until clear. Add salt, pepper and spices until fragrant.

  • 3. Add onions, carrots, parsley, ground flaxseeds, olive oil and beans to a deep dish and blend until smooth.

  • 4. Add brown rice and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. If the mixture is too dry, add a small amount of water. If it’s too wet, add more ground flaxseeds; the mixture should be malleable.

  • 5. Lightly grease a baking tray or baking paper with olive oil or spray. Using a spoon, form mixture into 6 balls and space evenly on the tray. Press with a spatula to flatten.

  • 6. Cook until golden and slightly crunchy (about 20 minutes). Transfer to a cooling tray and serve warm.

  • Serving suggestions

    • Break and serve with hummus, lettuce, tomato and avocado in a wrap.
    • Stack with rocket, sun dried tomatoes and avocado in a sandwich.
    • Cut into quarters and serve on top of a salad.
