Lentil Burgers

Postby A_Corner_Of_The_Earth » Sun Feb 25, 2007 4:34 pm

Lentil burgers are healthy, low-fat, and delicious.

Makes: 8-10 burgers

Ingredients
- 1 cup dry lentils, well rinsed
- 2½ cup water
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ medium onion, diced
- 1 medium carrot, diced
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp soy sauce, optional
- ¾ cup rolled oats, finely ground
- ¾ cup bread crumbs

Directions:
Place the lentils, water, and salt in saucepan, bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes, until water is nearly gone and lentils are very soft, with splitting skins.

Saute the onion and carrot in oil until soft (instead of using oil can use baking spray), about 5 minutes.

Mix the lentils, onions, carrots, pepper, and optional soy sauce in the large bowl, then mix in the ground oats and bread crumbs.

While still warm, roll the lentil mixture into patties, which can now be frozen, refrigerated (for up to 5 days), or cooked immediately.

Cooking (2 possibilities):
1. In a frying pan, heat a bit of oil, place a burger on top, and fry until brown, 1-2 minutes. Repeat on other side and serve.

2. In a 180º oven, bake the burgers on a greased baking sheet until light brown, about 15 minutes.

No worries Simmy. I love them too.

Also, can make a very low fat, low kj burger and cut a potato into wedges and sprinkle with paprika and oven bake them, and not feel like you are missing out from eating regular burgers and fries just eating a healthier alternative.

I made them for dinner last night and my boyfriend absolutely loved them. He didn't complain at all about eating 'rabbit food'.

I forgot to add:

2 egg whites added to the end mixture to hold the burgers together.


Each burger contains 227kjs or 55cals.
