I was craving lentil veggie burgers, but I could not find a recipe that I liked, so I decided to try my hand at concocting my own “recipe”. The resulting burgers were pretty tasty, so I am going to try to recreate the “recipe” here.

Lentil Veggie Burger

Note: all measurements are approximations, and if you try to make these burgers, you will likely need to adjust the ingredients and quantities until they seem just right to you.

Ingredients:

  • oil, for sautéing
  • one small onion, finely diced
  • one carrot, finely grated
  • two cloves of garlic, minced
  • one small potato, cooked and peeled
  • one 19 oz can of green lentils, drained and rinsed
  • ~2 tbsp. of walnuts, ground
  • ~3/4 cup of bread crumbs (I used gluten-free bread crumbs)
  • ~2-3 tbsp. of tomato sauce
  • ~2 tsp. soy sauce
  • ~1-1.5 heaping tbsp. tahini
  • 1.5 tsp. Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning
  • ~1 tsp. paprika
  • ~1/8 tsp. pepper
  • flour, as needed (I used rice flour)
  • water, as needed 

Directions:

  1. Saute onion, carrot and garlic in oil, until the onion is soft and the garlic is golden.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the potato.
  3. Gradually add the onion, carrot, garlic, and all of the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl. 
  4. Stir mixture and lightly mash with a fork.
  5. Add flour and water, as necessary, until you can form the mixture into patties. *you may find that it helps to let the mixture firm up in the fridge*
  6. Form the mixture into patties (I was able to make eight medium sized patties). *the patties will likely be a little fragile*
  7. Fry the patties in a little oil, for approximately 4 minutes per side.
  8. Enjoy!
