Ingredients

Instructions

Step A : Prepare burger patties

  • Set a cooking pot over high heat. Add rinsed brown lentils + salt + water.
  • Cover and bring it to a boil. Once it starts boiling, turn down the heat to medium and let it simmer for 18-20 minutes, or until the lentils become tender.
  • Strain and set aside.
  • Set a sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil + cumin seeds + garlic + onion and stir-sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Transfer this sautéed mixture + the cooked lentils to a food processor. Add mixed herbs + pepper + smoked paprika + soy sauce + tomato paste.
  • Gently pulse until everything is well combined (do not over blend - see video for reference).
  • Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add breadcrumbs.
  • Using a spatula, gently fold and mix.
  • Time to shape the patties. Scoop a handful of this mixture and give them the shape of a burger patty (see video for reference). Repeat the same until you've used up all the mixture. You should be able to make 4-7 of these patties depending on the amount used.
  • Time to fry. Set a non-stick pan over medium heat and coat with a bit of olive oil. Place the patties and gently fry for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until brown.

Step B : Layer the burger

  • Layer and assemble the burger. I used vegan mayo + lettuce + patty + tomatoes + baby pickles + fried onions.

    Tried this burger for lunch. The patty is a bit crumbly which is to be expected, I guess. But tastes so dang good.
