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

Step-By-Step

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