Lentil Burger Recipe

Lentil Burger Recipe

Tired of the same ol’ standard burger? Or maybe you just want something healthier? This veggie burger gives you a kick of flavor with a burst of health benefits too. The black lentils are a great source of cholesterol-lowering fiber and can even help lower blood sugar.  

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked black lentils
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions

Preparation:
Preheat over to 400°F.

In a food processor, process 1 cup of the lentils, the egg, aminos and wild rice until roughly pureed. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the carrots, cumin, walnuts, oregano, flax seeds, parsley, garlic and onions until well combined. You can also put it all into the food processor, but take care not to purée too finely so you have some texture in each bite.

Mix in the remaining cup of lentils, form 8 patties and bake for about 25 minutes. If you like, serve with salsa or avocado.
