Lady Lentil Burger

This burger is extremely easy and yummy and you can do it with basically any kind of pulse, I’ll show you a few later on but today the winner is……….Lentil!!!

We all know that beans are good for us and lentil is one of the best of them.  Lentils have the third-highest level of protein by weight, of any legume or nut, only loosing for soybeans and hemp. So it should be definitely a yes yes in everyone’s diet.

250g green lentil (if you use a can of on lentil on water, which was my choice, don’t forget to drain the water out)
4 cherry tomatoes
1 medium size onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic smashed
1 medium size potato grated
8 tbsp vegan breadcrumbs
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
Black pepper to taste

Mix the lentil and the tomatoes in a blender and transfer the mixture to a big bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and turn the oven on at 180c. Using your hands make 9 big balls and place them on a greased baking tray. Smash them a litter so they look like burger and bake them for 30 minutes at 180c or until golden.

You can deep fry them if you prefer but I always try to avoid deep fried food. You can eat this with vegan buns or with rice and salad. Either way this is a cheap and easy recipe, for those sunny days when you don’t feel like spending too much of you precious time in the kitchen. Enjoy!
