Spicy Lentil Burgers

So I’ve recently decided that I’m going to  be vegan, as a result  I  am forced to really change my thinking about food. So I’ve been working on my cooking and baking skills as well as exploring new yummy vegan recipes.

I do love a hearty burger but after I have eaten I never fail to feel super sluggish.  These vegan burgers are packed with flavour and  are so filling but, with all the high fiber and iron goodness of lentils.

Ingredients

  • Lentils 3/4 cup
  • Water 1 3/4 cups
  • Breadcrumbs 1 cup
  • Olive oil 1tbs 
  • Salt 
  • Black pepper
  • Chili powder 1 tbs
  • Garlic powder   2 teaspoon
  • Cumin 1/2 teaspoon
  • Dried thyme 1 teaspoon
  • Dried basil 1 teaspoon
  • Nutmeg (pinch)
  • Onion powder 2 teaspoon
  1. Rinse and clean your lentils and add water to a pan. Bring to boil and continue to cook the lentils till they are soft.
  2. Now that they are soft drain your lentils  and place in a medium size bowl.  Then using a potato masher, mash the lentils till they are of a mush constituency.
  3. Now just add all your dry ingredients and the olive oil and mix well.
  4. Begin to form your burger patty’s to any size you desire.
