Number of Servings: 8


    1 pound (1 1/2 cups) red lentils
    5 cups water, salted
    1 cup minced onion (1 medium)
    1/2 cup minced carrot (1 large)
    2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)
    Olive oil for the skillet
    2 cups chopped crimini mushrooms
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3/4 cup Japanese bread crumbs (panko)
    4 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
    10 ounces firm tofu, pureed in a blender


In a large pot, simmer the lentils in salted water until tender. Drain and cool.

In a large skillet, sauté the onion, carrot and garlic in 1 teaspoon olive oil until tender, about 2 minutes

Add the mushrooms, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until mushrooms are tender and liquid has evaporated, approximately 5 minutes, and allow to cool.

Add the bread crumbs, lemon juice, pureed tofu, 2 tablespoons olive oil and cooked lentils and mix to combine. Transfer to a large bowl. Chill for 30 minutes and then shape into 8 patties.

Pan fry in olive oil in a large skillet until each side is crisp and golden. Finish in a 350°F oven if necessary to heat through.
