Spiced Lentil Carrot Veggie Burgers

What you need: 

1 cup uncooked lentils
3 carrots, grated
1 onion, diced
3/4 cup whole grain flour, as needed
pinch sea salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 to 2 teaspoon(s) olive oil

What you do: 

1. Before you begin, the lentils must be fully cooked. Gently boil them in enough water to cover them by 2 ", with NO salt. Lentils will take about 30 minutes to cook. Drain lentils and place in bowl.
2. Add carrots and onion. Mash them a bit, but not too much. Add enough flour to get them to the point where they will stick together. You may also need to add a bit of water.
3. Season the mix with the spices (coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper); stir them through well. With your hands, form the lentil mix into burger shapes.
4. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to a heated pan and lay the burgers in. Leave them for about 10 minutes on the first side, flip, and cook another 5 to 7 minutes. Put the burgers in an oven on low heat to keep them warm while you cook the second batch.

I was in sort of a hurry when I was making these and so I had no time to put them in the freezer or fridge and so I was nervous when I began to form the patties and noticed how soft and mushy they were - but I threw them in the pan anyway and to my surprise they held up better than any other bean burger I have ever made!! I was so excited!! And they taste really good too! I added some peas to the mix just because I felt like it and I loved that addition. And I also added some garlic.
I ended up with 12 patties! I tried them inside a bun and without a bun and like them either way! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

We used sprouted lentils, and added a bit of tomato and red bell pepper in the patties,  they turned out great!

Fantastic and really easy :) Looking back I would have added a bit more sea salt but my "pinch" was on the small side to begin with. My burgers were not as thick, so it yielded 8 burgers. If you're reading this, make these now!

These were really good! I followed the above comments and placed the mix in the refrigerator for a while before cooking to ensure the patties stuck together. I also added a chia "egg" to bind it all. For the wholegrain flour I used spelt, doubled the seasonings and added a few leaves of basil that needed to be used up. Thanks so much for sharing this! I served the patties on spelt buns with coriander chutney- yum! Oh, and am I the only one who got 12 giant patties not 6?! leftovers- yippee!

After mixing all the ingredients, I put the bowl in the refrigerator for one hour. The mixture was very easy to shape into burgers.
The carrots add to the color and texture.
I plan to try the liquid smoke suggestion next time.

yum! i just made these and they turned out great! i added some chopped red bell pepper and a little garlic powder. i did have to add a little water to make sure they stayed together. it made quite a bit of "mix" so this will be great for leftovers, too!  ;)b

Recipe turned out great!  I followed the suggestion above and placed them in the freezer for a bit to help firm them up, which was beneficial.

I also added about a teaspoon of Liquid Smoke which made them taste even more grill/burger-like.

Good stuff. I made a mess like I always do when making veggie burgers. They have a nice flavor and texture and were just a little easier to make than my black bean burgers, but I'm not sure which ones I like the most still! Anywho, thanks for the recipe. I had leftover bits from the rutabaga chips I made, so I mixed them in the batch along with the other ingredients.
