Lentil Burger Recipe

I thought that it was about time that I introduced some healthy burgers to the mix. This Lentil Burger recipe is only 5 years old, but a favourite. I have quite a few burger recipes and will eventually get around to posting them all. This one in particular is quite healthy and only has a few ingredients. You put the ingredients in a bowl and mix by hand.. that’s it!  I hope you try this one, although it’s not gluten free its still a nice vegetarian burger. This burger also comes with its own sauce recipe as well, so enjoy!

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 cup cold mashed potato
400g canned brown lentils, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon mild Indian curry paste
4 spring onions thinly sliced
1 egg
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs

Dressing

1/2 cup (130g) low-fat plain yoghurt
1/4 cup (60ml) lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Tahini

Place the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine, season and set aside

Method

Place the mashed potato, lentils, curry paste, spring onions, egg and breadcrumbs in a large bowl
Season with salt and pepper

Divide the mixture into 4 patties, using additional breadcrumbs to help shape the patties

Cook patties for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden and warmed through

Hints

Try adding different herbs for a different flavour
