Survival Cooking: Lentil and rice… Burger?

Remember that stockpile of rice and beans and lentils you have set aside for SHTF, the one you’re supposed to be eating already because a) you store what you eat b) its actually good for you?
Well, there’s yet another way of cooking it. God, I love how versatile this stuff is. Stews, salads, soups and now you can add burgers. Just scoop some leftover lentil and rice stew. Wait until it cools down or just keep it in the fridge from a previous meal. Form a patty with it and just heat it in a pan with a couple drops of oil. It will even get a bit toasty brown from the heat like a real burger.

No, its not as good as an actual beef burger but its surprisingly good, and some ketchup and nice melted cheese will go a long way into tricking your taste buds.
Keep in mind this is made with a dry staple you keep in your pantry, not fresh ground beef. Remember that burger scene from the movie “Demolition Man”? Exactly. I’ll take a lentil and rice burger over a rat burger any day of the week if SHTF.
It’s a pretty healthy alternative too.
Take care people and give it a go sometime.

I have been a lifelong vegetarian as a result of being born in a religious Hindu family in India. Veggie food is a bit more wholesome than meat and is also ecologically friendlier.
