"Red lentils are my favorite. I was craving something lentil-y and found a recipe that was just what i wanted after I changed it up a little. I topped them with cherry tomatoes and garlic sprouts. I will totally make this again, it was so amazing!"

Directions

  1. Combine water and lentils in a saucepan; bring to a boil and cook until the water is completely absorbed and the lentils tender yet holding form, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer lentils to a large bowl and let cool.
  2. Stir onion, cilantro, garlic, mustard, cumin, parsley, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes into the lentils; add flour as needed to help absorb excess moisture and bind ingredients together. Shape lentil mixture into 4 patties.
  3. Prepare a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  4. Cook burgers in the hot skillet until firm and hot in the center, 4 to 7 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I had some issues with them falling apart as I tried to fry them. Then I tried to cook some in my George Foreman® Grill. Those worked, but took a long time for some reason. Next time I'll just do it in the oven.

I found that the "batter" would not stick at all. I added an egg and increased the flour to 1/3 of a cup, then they would form patties.

recipe delivers a solid red lentil sandwich. Easy and satisfying. I will enjoy them again. Found 1/3 cup of mixture per patty was plenty big enough. While eating them, and cutting the finished sandwich in half, they squish in the bun somewhat.

It is difficult to make a veggie burger, this burger was not a good one.
