Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful.


  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook the rice, then let it cool down a few minutes.
  2. In a food processor combine the rice, tofu, garlic, green onions, parsley, soy sauce, paprika, and Tabasco sauce, then pulse until coarsely ground. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the beaten egg. Shape the dough into patties (2 per serving).
  4. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook the patties on one side for about 4 min, until golden, then gently flip and cook on the other side for about 5 min.
  5. Transfer the burgers to the prepared baking sheet and cook in the middle of the oven for about 30 min, or until they are firm and cooked through on the inside.
  6. Serve the burgers on bread and top with a spoonful of mayonnaise.
