Ingredients

2 c
lentils, cooked and cooled
1
egg
1/2 c
cracker crumbs
1 small
onion, minced
tomato juice
salt and pepper, to taste
olive oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook lentils ahead of time, following package instructions. Make sure they're nice and soft, but not mushy. Cool to room temperature.
2
In a large mixing bowl combine lentils with egg, crumbs, onion, salt and pepper.
3
Use just enough tomato juice to make the mixture hold together when formed into patties. Divide the mixture into six even portions, and shape into patties.
4
Fry the patties, just like hamburgers, in a small amount of olive oil (or whatever you prefer).
5
Serve on buns and pass the ketchup!
