Delicious Unique Spicy Risotto

Risotto is supposed to be an Italian rice dish. But even though the ingredients in this recipe are not typically Italian, I am taking the privilege of calling it Risotto, since it is actually a blend of rice and other interesting ingredients. This item is very easy to make, can be mild or spicy, and it is healthy too.

Step 7

Add half of the cooked rice to the mixture in the frypan. Add 1 teaspoon salt and half of the cilantro. If you like it tangy, add 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Mix the contents gently with a non-stick spatula, without mashing the rice.

Add them to the fry pan and mix by turning around the contents gently. If you like, you can add the veggie burger cubes separately on each serving plate, instead of mixing it with the contents in the frypan.
