Ingredients

    1 cup lentils
    1 cup oats
    1 cup lentils
    1 pound extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry, then sliced
    2 large eggs
    1 tbsp parsley - fresh or dried
    1/2 cup fine dried bread crumbs
    1/2 cup sunflower seeds
    1 tablespoon dry mustard
    1 tablespoon shoyu or soy sauce
    dash Worcestershire
    1 tablespoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground cayenne
    1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 tsp cajun seasoning (optional)
    1/3 balsamic vinegar

    (alternately, but still good - microwave 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms for two minutes or until they've lost most of their water. Discard water. Add to food processor.)

Directions

Cook oats, lentils and brown or red rice together in at least four cups of water until all are soft; about 45 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 415 degrees.
Drain in a colander and press out as much water as you can. The mixture will still be a bit wet. Combine this and all the other ingredients, except the eggs, in the food processor 'til the consistency is even. Taste the mixture - it should be yummy. If not, add more pepper, soy sauce, seasonings, etc. Once it's palatable, add the eggs and blend. The mixture will be a bit gloppy.
Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a large baking dish and scoop out about 1-handful-sized (just short of a cup) bits of the mixture onto the baking sheets.
Bake for one hour, flipping at 30 minutes.

Eat just out of the oven prepared as a burger or re-heated in lieu of meat. These freeze beautifully.
