These lentil burgers taste far better than they sound and are well worth trying. You can experiment a little by varying, adding or substuting some of the ingredients.
1 cup lentils
1 can broth, or water
2 cups whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 hamburger buns
condiments: lettuce, tomato, mustard, mayo, catsup, pickles, etc.
Rinse and drain lentils. Bring lentils and broth (or water) to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until lentils are tender.
Drain lentils, reserving liquid.
Mash slightly, add bread crumbs, onion, celery, parsley, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper.
Mix well, adding reserved liquid if necessary to reach the right consistency.
Form into 6 patties; coat in flour and pan fry about 5 minutes on each side, until thoroughly browned.
Serve on buns as you would any hamburger.
