  • 1
    In medium bowl, stir rice and boiling water. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Drain if necessary.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in food processor, place broccoli, mushrooms and bell pepper. Cover and process, using quick on-and-off motions, to finely chop vegetables (do not puree). Stir vegetables into rice.
  • 3
    Add beans, egg, garlic and seasoned salt to food processor. Cover and process until smooth. Stir bean mixture, onion and bread crumbs into vegetable mixture.
  • 4
    Using about 1/2 cup vegetable mixture for each patty, shape into 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  • 5
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook patties in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until brown and crisp. Serve on buns with toppings.

Expert Tips

  • Heat oven to 400°F. Generously spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray. Shape vegetable mixture into 16 balls; place in pan. Generously spray tops of balls with cooking spray. Bake about 20 minutes or until crisp. Serve with pasta sauce (any flavor) or cheese sauce.
