How to Make Lentil Burgers

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!
