Rice Lentil Patties

These are one of my family's favorite recipe.

2 c. brown rice (cooked)
2 c. lentils (cooked)
1 med. onion chopped
1/2 red pepper
1 carrot shreded (optional)
2 green onions
1 garlic clove
Italian seasoning or your favorite mexican spice
salt and pepper to taste
2 egg whites (for dipping)

Combine rice and lentils, if you have a food processor put all your veiggies in it and chop, it does a great job, the smaller the veggies the better. Once chopped add them to your rice and lentils. Spice the mix to taste. Don't be shy with the spices. Make patties measure about 1/4 to 1/3 cup

roll them in your hand like a ball , dip into egg whites. Put them on a greased pan. You can flaten them to look like a burger if you like. Bake 350 degree oven for 20 min. turning once. You can bake them a little longer for a golden crispier look. Serve with tomatoe sauce, or with a salad, Yum.
