Mushroom Lentil Burgers Recipe

Makes 8 burgers

½ cup lentils

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
8 ounces mushrooms, finely chopped
1 medium onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup bread crumbs
1 large egg
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Place lentils in a small saucepan with 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes until tender.

While lentils are cooking, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, mushrooms, onion, and garlic to a large skillet and saute until onions are translucent and mushrooms are a light brown (about 7minutes). Place mushroom mixture in a large bowl.

Puree ½ cup of the cooked lentils (you will have one cup total) in a food processor or blender. Add lentil puree and whole lentils to mushrooms along with bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper. Mix and make into 8 patties. Refrigerate the patties on a plate wrapped in plastic wrap to help them set.

Heat a skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add the patties. Cook until crispy about 5 minutes per side. After you cook them, these patties freeze well.
