Battle of the Burgers

I recently teamed up with my amazing friend Coach Gessie Thompson from The Detox Now to create a plant based burger to feature on CLEO TV for an epic burger battle cooking show. You can catch a preview of the show here and catch the full episode on CLEO TV Saturday 5/16 at NOON EST.

So often people assume that eating a plant based "electric" diet means that they will miss out on so many favorite recipes. I was super excited to share this lentil wild rice burger recipe in effort to spread a little "plant based food is super delicious awareness."

Checkout the recipe



  • 2 cups of cooked green lentils

  • 2 cups of cooked wild rice 

  • 1/8 cup of quick oats

  • 1/4 cup of Chickpea (Garbanzo) flour

  • 1/2 red onion chopped

  • 1 tsp of mustard powder

  • The leaves of 2 thyme sprigs

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 2 tsp of onion powder

  • pinch of cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp of coriander

  • 1 tsp of salt 

  • pepper to taste

  • Avocado oil for cooking



First lightly sauteè the onion, garlic and fresh thyme in a skillet with a little avocado oil. Then add the onion and garlic into a food processor and pulse until broken down. Next add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until it resembles ground meat. Remove the mixture from the food processor and form your desired size patties (adding more flour if necessary. Now place a large skillet over medium heat and add in 1 tsp of oil. Once the pan is hot add in the patties (You may need to do it in batches so that you don't overcrowd the pan. Let the burgers cook for about 4-5 minutes one each side. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes before using.
