 A very easy & tasty vegetarian burger taken from Vegetarian Times Mag Aug 
 93  issue with a few of my own additions. 
 Cook rice till cooked and slightly  sticky (white rice, I use basmati will 
 take approx 20 min ), & lentils til  soft. Cool slightly.
 
  Finely mince a medium sweet potato which has been  peeled and cook until 
 soft.  Cool slightly. 
 
 Finely chop the mushrooms.  Spinach leaves should be rinsed and finely 
 shredded.
 
 Mix all ingredients  and spices together adding salt & pepper to taste. 
 (Nutrition values will  not reflect added salt content). Chill in the 
 refrigerator 15-30 min. Form  into patties and saute in pan or can be done 
 on a vegetable grill on an outdoor grill. Make sure to grease or spray pan 
 with Pam as these burgers will tend to stick. 
 
 Note: any added oil or fat will not show up in the  nutrition values so 
 you must add any additional.
