Homemade Lentil Vegetable Burgers

23 Jan

These homemade lentil burgers are to die for. This is seriously one of the easiest recipes we have ever made. The nutritional stats on these burgers are amazing too! This recipe yields 4 huge lentil vegetable burgers each packed with only 130 calories and around 10 grams of protein, depending on the type of lentils you use!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup dried brown lentils
1 grated carrot
1/4 yellow onion
1 cup of spinach, chopped
1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 garlic clove (or 1/4 tsp. garlic powder)
1 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Cook dried lentils. We cooked ours by bringing 2 cups of water and the lentils to a boil, reduced the heat, and allowed them to simmer for 30-35 minutes until they started to get mushy. You may have to occasionally add water to keep them from drying out. Once the lentils are cooked you can drain remaining water, if any.

2. Once lentils are cooked, combine the carrot, onion, rolled oats, and garlic and mash with a fork. Once the mixture is completely mashed add the flour and continue to mix until it forms into a dough like texture. Finally, mix in the spinach.
3. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat. Form dough into 4 equal size balls. Flatten and cook burgers 4-5 minutes on each side.

These make a great sandwich, but would also be perfect on top of a salad! This is one of those recipes we will definitely be brining to a summer BBQ to show everyone that you can still have one kick ass sandwich without any meat.
