Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Cheeseburger and Fries with Sticky Rice


This is one of my favorite meals!  Well, it is now anyway.  I love sticky rice, but you can use regular white rice if you don’t have a rice cooker.  If you can make the sticky rice a day or two ahead of time, it will be better.

I wrote this recipe to serve 3-4 people.


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 2 cups of sweet rice or glutinous rice
  • 2 1/2 cups of water
  • Alexia Yukon Gold french fries (these don’t have any garlic or chili powder added)***
  • Slices of your favorite cheese

***Or better yet, Homemade French Fries

Directions (sticky rice)

Let the rice soak in the water for 40 minutes-2 hours in a rice cooker, then turn the rice cooker on.  When it’s done let it sit in the rice cooker for about an hour with the heat turned off.  Put it in some tupperware with a lid and stick it in the fridge to heat it up later if you can wait.

Directions (other stuff)

Heat the oven to 425 degrees.  When it’s heated up, place the fries on a pan and cook for 26 minutes.  Form the beef into 3 or 4 patties and cook them all the way through.  We cook ours using our panini press, but using a pan works too. As soon as you take them off the grill or pan or whatever, put the cheese on top.

Form the sticky rice into round patties for your burgers to sit on, surround with fries and eat!
