Lentil Burgers

Submitted by: SMARTIN77

Introduction

Delicious on wraps or toasted buns, this healthy dish is a great alternative to regular burgers. The lentils and crumbs made from sprouted grain bread are full of fiber and vitamins/minerals. Even my husband enjoys these for a light lunch or dinner. Double or triple the recipe, freeze on wax paper, and enjoy lentil burgers for up to a month. (Adapted from a slightly more complicated recipe from Cooking Light) Delicious on wraps or toasted buns, this healthy dish is a great alternative to regular burgers.

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cup lentils, cooked and drained
    1/4 cup carrot, grated
    2 slices Ezekiel Bread, toasted
    1 stalk green onion, chopped
    1/3 cup feta cheese
    5 black olives
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 sprigs dill (optional)
    Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Tips

Manual method for processing:
1) Tear toasted bread in pieces and place in ziploc bag. Crush with rolling pin to create breadcrumbs.
2) If you have a mortar and pestle, use to crush breadcrumbs, olives, etc. (these are a great tool for the kitchen)
3) Use a hand mixer (on low) or blender to mix ingredients if you do not have a food processor.

These patties are a little more delicate than those held together by egg (like a salmon patty). Chill mixture in fridge for about an hour to help them hold together better during cooking. (I cooked them fresh, but will use this method next time)

Directions

Place pre-cooked noodles in colander. Drain excess juice. Rinse if desired. Tear toasted bread into pieces. In food processor, add bread, olives, onions, carrot, garlic, dill and lentils and pulse for a few seconds to create patty mixture (or use one of the manual methods in tips section). Shape into four patties. Spray pan with olive oil spray and cook patties on medium heat, three minutes each side. Serve immediately or refrigerate or freeze for later. (can be frozen up to one month on wax paper in ziploc bag)
