I made this alot and all my friends love it!. I saw a video of her and Sarah Carey making it on the Family Dinners DVD. I don't think I have EVER used Basmati rice so I wouldn't worry about it. In the video they say you can use any type. I use leftover rice alot. I am not a vegetarian either but I eat this when I want to cut back. In the video they said to be careful not to overmix.

Look I've done alot of really beautiful recipes from Martha, but I have to say this is the worst bean burger I have ever tasted. I served it to some friends and we all agreed, awful. What were you thinking when you posted this horrible burger. It's terrible. Don't even bother to make this, it's a waste of good beans and bread crumbs.

I cook brown rice almost every day, just for my three pups, so I always have it and black beans as well. Oh yeah, I use wheat germ instead of bread crumbs, because wheat germ just tastes so much better to me.

I am not a vegetarian, so I use an egg in mine, but why would anyone use non sticky rice in something you need to have stick together? I only use natural brown rice for such as this and I want it very sticky.

Basmati is a longer grain, non-sticky rice with a nice aroma when cooking. It comes in white or brown. My guess is that a cup of any cooked long grain would be a fine substitute, since it is ground in the food processor with the beans. :)

These are the best! Freezable(place wax paper between each pattie before freezing)
