Olive Lentil Burgers

Submitted by: CHRISWANTSABS

Introduction

The only modification I made to this recipe from the Post Punk Kitchen is leaving out the onions. Mostly because I don't have any onions and was far too lazy to go to the store. She uses a 3" cookie cutter to form her patties. I use a standard size burger press. She got 6 out of hers, I got 4. I like my burgers to be substantial so this worked for me but feel free to play around with size and shape. My mom thought I should make them shaped like cows. My mom thinks she's funny.

Ingredients

    1 tsp Truffle Oil (Olive Oil if you don't have truffle oil always on hand because your roommate has an addiction to truffles.)
    1/2 pound cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    Fresh black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
    1 1/4 cup cooked lentils (equals 1 15oz can, but I made mine from dry.)
    1 cup breadcrumbs, divided
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    1 teaspoon liquid smoke

Directions

Heat the oil in a skillet large enough to hold all the onions. (Don't skimp on this or you will have the mess I did.)
Cook the garlic for 1 minute then add the mushrooms, thyme, pepper, onion powder. Cook until mushrooms have released their moisture and are cooked down.

In the meantime, chop your olives in the food processor to a fine dice. Remove. Don't worry about cleaning out the processor.

Combine mushroom mixture, 1/2 of the breadcrumbs, lentils, soy sauce, lemon juice in food processor. Pulse until very well combined with a consistent consistency. (ha)

In a bowl, combine olives, remaining bread crumbs, and mushroom lentil mixture and stir until well combined.

Form in to patties and fry until well browned. Excellent with hummus.
