Lentil Burgers recipe

To prepare these burgers, cook the green lentils in boiling water for 20 minutes until they are tender and then drain them and allow them to cool.

Meanwhile, peel and chop the carrots, slice the tomatoes and cut the spring onion as well. Next, in a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and then add the spring onion. When the spring onion is translucent, add the carrots and cook them for about 2 minutes.

After that, add the cooked lentils with fried carrots and spring onion, walnuts, rolled oats, red chili pepper flakes, and salt to the food processor and pulse until all the ingredients are mashed and combined. If the mixture seems too wet, add more rolled oats as needed.

Then form 4 individual round and flat patties with your hands. After that, in a small frying pan (14 cm), warm the olive oil over medium heat and cook the patties on each side for about 3-4 minutes until they are golden brown. These burgers are tender, so when you want to flip them, place a plate on the frying pan and then flip the burgers.

To assemble the burgers, warm the burger buns first, then add the tomato and cheese slices to the lentil burgers and serve them. You can accompany these burgers with a green salad and also with French fries.


Note: It is better to soak the green lentils for 6-7 hours before cooking them. This helps to digest the lentils better, and it also reduces bloating.
