Vegetarian Rice Burger bento
Today's lunch is all on a bed of spinach. I have strawberries, baby carrots, cheddar cheese (ok, that is not vegetarian, but the rest is), baby dill pickles, and a rice burger with a grilled portabella mushroom as the burger. I marinated the mushroom in a bit of lite soy sauce before I grilled it.
How do you make the rice burger bun? Well, you can go out and buy the molds for it. OR you can do what I did. First I cooked some white rice per directions. I took my round cookie cutter and put it on a plate. Next I filled it a little over the top with white rice and pressed down on it as hard as I could. Then you lift the cookie cutter and pop out the rice patty. Place it in a pan with a little bit of butter or cooking spray. Not to much! You want it to crisp up but not be greasy. Crisp both sides and allow to cool.
