Lentil Burgers

What you need: 

1/2 cup green lentils
1/4 cup bulgur
2 cups water
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. sage
Pinch cayenne
1 medium onion, minced
equivelant of 2 dairy free egg substitute
3 Tbs. nutritional yeast
Approx. 1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour

What you do: 

In a good-sized pot, bring lentils to a boil with water. Reduce heat, and simmer for 25 minutes. Add bulgur and seasonings. Simmer for another 5 minutes or until water is absorbed and lentils are tender. Remove from heat, add onion, and stir (or let sit) until cool enough to handle. Mix with egg and nutritional yeast; then add flour a little bit at a time, mixing to distribute flour evently. Use just enough flour to enable mixture to be made into patties. (Theyll be a little sticky.) Wet hands, and form into patties, about 1/2 thick. Fry in lightly oiled skillet over medium heat for a few minutes on each side.

hello, when you say bulgur, is that bulgur wheat? Thank you


These are good burgers.  I use brown lentils and leave out the nutritional yeast.
