Best start off by boiling the rice. If you have precooked Beans you can use them alright, if not - soak them for at least 2 hours, rinse and then boil them for 45 minutes.. Make sure to wash them properly and let everything dry out afterwards.
200 g Black natural rice, 250 g Black beans
Chop the onion and shiitake mushrooms. Add oil to a pan and fry mushrooms and onions at medium to high heat until they start to turn brown. Deglaze with some soy sauce and let the liquid vanish almost completely.
100 g fresh Shitake, 50 g Onion, 3 tbsp Soy Sauce, Oil
Chop the Cilantro / Coriander, add it to the blender with the beans, rice and mushrooms and the ground flax seeds. Add pepper, salt and cumin to your liking. Add cocoa and anise to round up the taste. Blend on medium speed until the mass is sticky, but still chunky. We don‘t want to create a homogenous mass here, so better start slowly with the blending.
2 tbsp Cocoa, 1/4 tbsp Ground Star Anise, 25 g Chopped Cilantro, 2 tsp Ground Cumin, Pepper, Salt, 3 tbsp Ground Flax Seed
Form a nice ball from the burger mass and let it rest for at least half an hour. Then take either an empty tin, a burger press or a dessert form (you will find something fitting in your household) and shape some nice round patties. If you now want, you can put them in the oven for 10 minutes to give them more bite by removing excess water. This however is optional
Fry the patties for about 4 minutes on each side on medium to high heat.
