  1. Chop vegetables you choose to use for burgers and saute in frying pan with olive oil about 10 minutes.
  2. In medium bowl combine cooked rice, sauteed vegetables, black beans (rinsed and partially mashed), flavored or unflavored breadcrumbs, 1 egg and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Form patties and dredge through panko breadcrumbs for a crunchy exterior (optional) and cook over medium heat in frying pan with olive oil (about 7 minutes on each side)
