    Serves: 4

    • 300g minced chicken (or turkey)

    1. Place brown rice in a saucepan and cover generously with water. Bring to the boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook until tender, about 40 minutes, then drain any water left in the pan.
    2. Combine cooked rice and mince. Add egg, herbs, salt and pepper. Form small burgers, dredge in flour and set aside.
    3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add burgers and cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the centre.


    Don't be tempted to use white rice, which won't hold up as well as heartier brown rice. If you don't have brown rice, other whole grain options would be bulgur wheat, farro or barley.
