1 pkg
(16 oz.) of lentils
water, cold...enough to cover lentils
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
onion powder
1 tsp
parsley flakes
1 tsp
salt and pepper
1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
italian bread crumbs
oil for frying


1Sort & rinse lentils. Put in large pot, cover with water. Cook over medium-high heat, boil with lid on until water is absorbed. Lentils will be soft & plump.
2Put lentils in big bowl, let cool for 5-10 minutes, then add rest of ingredients, minus oil. Mix well with hands.
3Heat large frying pan with oil. Take lentil mixture in hand and form into burger shape, put in pan & fry up about 4-5 minutes per side. You will see them start to darken up. When done put on plate lined with paper towel. Serve on your favorite bun & toppings.
4If you would like to freeze them, just stack them in a ziplock bag or your favorite container, but put a piece of wax paper between each burger. ENJOY!
