Here’s something to take with you into the 4th of July holiday weekend: a veggie burger recipe c/o Gwyneth Paltrow!

Apparently the actress’ vegetarian daughter, Apple (what a fitting name!), requests these patties on a weekly basis. The recipe is from her cookbook, My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness, where Paltrow writes, “My guys like these with avocado.” The “guys” are her Coldplay rocker husband, Chris Martin, and the couple’s son, Moses.

Check out the fun recipe below!

Gwyneth’s Veggie Burgers

2 tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil

1 small yellow onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp (1 mL) each: ground cumin, coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper

14-oz (398-mL) can black beans, drained, rinsed

1/2 cup (125 mL) cooked brown rice (hot or cold)

1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped cilantro leaves

2 tbsp (30 mL) all-purpose flour

3 tbsp (45 mL) safflower or other vegetable oil

4 burger buns, preferably whole wheat or sprouted grain, grilled or heated as desired

Optional toppings:

Avocado slices

Tomato slices

Red onion slices

Heat olive oil in medium skillet over medium. Add onion, garlic and cumin. Cook, stirring, 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add beans and rice. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro. Mash with potato masher until just combined.

When cool enough to handle, divide into 4 portions. Pat into 4 patties, each about 4-inch (10-cm) wide. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to cook.

To cook, dust patties on each side with flour.

Heat vegetable oil in large skillet on medium-high. Add patties. Cook until browned and warmed through, about 90 seconds per side, reducing heat to medium if needed.

Serve on buns with toppings, if desired.
