    Julesong's Note:

    I make batches of this veggie burger, and freeze patties for later. I usually serve it in pita bread. Yum! Adapted (tweaked and additional ingredients) from a recipe in the original Moosewood Cookbook recipe titled "Lentil-Walnut Burgers." Prep time includes chilling.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Using a food processor, finely mince the appropriate ingredients listed above.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan, bring the lentils, vinegar, oil, and water to a boil.
    3. 3
      Reduce the temperature, and simmer, partly-covered, 30 minutes or until the lentils are soft and the liquid is absorbed.
    4. 4
      In the meantime (while lentils are cooking), saute remaining ingredients together over medium heat in butter and additional olive oil for 10 to 15 minutes and all are tender.
    5. 5
      When lentils are soft, and liquid is gone, place in large bowl and mash (or use food processor).
    6. 6
      Add the mushroom mixture to the mashed or processed lentils, and mix well.
    7. 7
      Chill for about 1 hour.
    8. 8
      Make 4-inch patties from chilled mixture.
    9. 9
      Note: uncooked burgers may be individually wrapped and frozen. For freezing, make patties, place wax paper between each patty and stack; wrap well and freeze (or wrap individually).
    10. 10
      To cook: Fry burgers in butter until brown, *or* broil about 8 minutes on each side. Try putting sesame seeds in pan to keep burgers from sticking to pan, if it is a problem.
    11. 11
      Serve either as patties, as burgers in a whole-wheat bun, or filling for a pita.
    12. 12
      Good with cheese melted on top, basil sprinkled on each burger is tasty also.

      This recipe is very confusing, with no indicating of which ingredients to chop and cook. I had to go back to the original Moosewood cookbook after trying to get through this one.

      Really nice! I made two changes: as I was trying to use up veggie baked beans, I used instead of lentils, I also left out wine but in its place used some vegetable broth. I lightly sauted them(need to watch closely), but today I sprayed with slightly with olive oil and prepared in my George Forman grill. Great! Thanks Julesong.
