Original Veggie Burgers

Original Veggie Burgers

Introduction

THESE ARE SO YUMMY! This was my first experience to make (or eat) a veggie burger, and I can tell you it won't be my last! Even my carnivore (lol) father LOVES these and asks for them a lot. He calls them Krabby-Patties. THESE ARE SO YUMMY! This was my first experience to make (or eat) a veggie burger, and I can tell you it won't be my last!

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    • 1 c dry lentils, well rinsed
    • 2½ c water
    • ½ t salt
    • 1 T olive oil
    • ½ medium onion, diced
    • 1 medium carrot, diced
    2 cups fresh spinach leaves
    • ½ t pepper
    • 1 t soy sauce, optional
    • ¾ c rolled oats, finely ground
    • ¾ c bread crumbs, fresh ground from whole-wheat bread

Directions

Place the lentils, water, and salt in saucepan, bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes, until water is nearly gone and lentils are very soft, with splitting skins.
Sauté the onion and carrot in oil until soft, about 5 minutes; wilt spinach for 1-2 minutes with onions and carrot.
Mix the lentils, onions, carrots, spinach, pepper, and soy sauce in the large bowl, then mix in the ground oats and bread crumbs.
While still warm, form the lentil mixture into appx 3-inch-across patties, which can now be frozen, refrigerated (for up to 5 days), or cooked immediately.
Cooking (2 possibilities):
1. In a frying pan, heat a bit of oil, place a burger on top, and fry until brown, 1-2 minutes. Repeat on other side and serve.
2. In a 400º oven, bake the burgers on a greased baking sheet until light brown, about 15 minutes.
Notes
You can eat these veggie burgers as you would a hamburger - on a bun or toast, topped with ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, onion, pickles....

  • Made and enjoyed the burgers. They are a little bland, but that is good because you can put anything on them. I baked them, and next time I might add grilled veggies. I will make this again. - 7/7/10
