Lentil Burgers

 This was my first attempt at homemade veggie burgers...and they were delicious! I received a free sample of lentils in the mail and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them. I had searched several recipes when I found this lentil burger recipe. They sounded delicious to me but I wasn't sure how Nick would like them. I tried them anyway, and even this meat lover was happy with them, which is a good thing because they will definitely be made again!
 Lentil Veggie Burgers (adapted from Kath Eats Real Food)
Makes 3 burgers
  • 1 cup cooked lentils (I used 1/2 cup uncooked and cooked them in water and veggie broth)
  • 2/3 cup chopped veggies (I used yellow pepper, carrot, celery, green onion)
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp pecans
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
2. Combine all ingredients in food processor and process until all blended together. 
3. Form into 3 patties. 
4. Place patties onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes on each side.
