    Mizzy's Note:

    This recipe can also be made into a lentil loaf and served with mashed potatoes and vegan gravy. Served as burgers, they are also very good cold topped with ketchup and mayo.

      Very good base recipe. I added some quiona, walnuts and pecans: raisins might work well too. The use of bread crumbs helped. Also I pulsed the finished mixture a few times in the food processor for better blending and hold ability. I also tried it backed in meat ball shapes and it worked well.

      Good way to use left over rice and beans or peas.

      This was very good. I used a little bit of cayenne pepper instead of chili powder. I also chopped up and added baked walnuts. Yum!

      I made this recipe today, also found in the Candle Cafe Cookbook, and was pleased with the results. I had to add about 1/4 cup of flour to get them to stay together and will try with breadcrumbs next time. I did cook the lentils a bit longer (25 mins. in 2 cups of water) so they would have a mushier texture. This is an economical recipe and the burgers certainly are filling -- served them on burger buns topped with cheese, tomato, red onion, cucumber, avocado, mayo, mustard and ketchup.
