Expert Tips

Instant brown rice cooks in 10 minutes, rather than 45 minutes for regular brown rice. You can also find frozen precooked brown rice in the freezer section of your supermarket to get dinner on the table even faster!

Be creative with toppings for these tasty patties. Why not try pico de gallo or black bean salsa for a Tex-Mex twist? Or simply offer sour cream or yogurt for a taste accent.
