Lentil Burgers #2

Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Dried red lentils
  • Water; to cook
  • 1 c Bread crumbs; pref. whole
  • -wheat
  • 1 lg Onion; finely chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced
  • Salt and pepper; to taste


Wash lentils thoroughly & pick out any sticks & stones & grit which might
get in them. In a large pot, bring the water to a rolling boil. Add
lentils & cook for 20-25 minutes until the lentils start to puree. Drain &
let cool.
It is not necessary to let them get cold.

Transfer the cooked lentils to a large mixing bowl. Add bread crumbs,
garlic & onion & mix thoroughly. Season well.

You then can experiment with herbs & spices. I usually add loads of cajun
spice, with healthy measures of parsley, basil & marjoram. You could try
thyme or sage. It is your choice.

If the mixture does not hold together well enough, add more bread crumbs.
Form into patties & then cook as you would a regular hamburger in a little
oil. Or barbecue. If they are really dry, then they hold together well
enough to barbecue.
