Ingredients

    You will need:

    1 can (425g) of Cooked Lentils
    1 can (425g) of Cooked Black beans
    6 Tbs. Extra light Olive Oil
    1 c. Brown Onions (finely chopped)
    1 Tbs. Nutritional Yeast
    1 c. Carrot (grated)
    1 1/2 c. Fresh bread crumbs (be sure to use Gluten-Free bread crumbs for GF option!)
    2 Tbs. Brown rice flour (or Buckwheat flour)
    Salt and Pepper to taste


Directions

1) Place the canned beans in a large mixing bowl and lightly mash together with a potato masher or fork. Set aside.

2) Chop onion. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet and gently cook the onion

3) Mix into the mashed beans with the yeast, grated carrot, bread crumbs, and seasoning. Mix well.

4) With wet hands, divide the mixture into 6 and form into burger patties (3 1/2 inches/8cm in diameter). Sift the flour onto a plate and use to coat the burgers.

5) Cook the burgers on a medium hot grill for 4-5 minutes (or until golden brown) on each side, brushing with the remaining oil from time to time.

6) Put the burgers on your choice of toasted bun or grilled bread (see my gluten-free bread recipes) and serve with melted low-fat mozerella cheese, grilled/toasted spinach leaves, and your favorite toppings. Add some grilled portabellos or a side salad for a delicious, healthy meal!

  • We didn't brush the burgers with the remaining oil and left the brown rice flour out. We simply grilled them on our indoor non-stick grill. So very tasty and easy to make! - 6/24/10
