Directions

  1. Put lentils and water in a pot, bring to a boil and then lower heat to a simmer. Simmer lentils until soft and water has been absorbed, adding a little more water if necessary. Stir occasionally.(about 30 min).
  2. While lentils are cooking, finely chop the garlic, bell pepper, scallions, celery, and nuts.
  3. In a frying pan large enough to hold the veggies, heat the oil over medium heat and saute the nuts and veggies until tender, about 10-15 minute Stir in the salt, pepper and chili powder, if using.
  4. Transfer vegetable mixture and cooked lentils to a large bowl. Add the ketchup and mustard.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  7. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a baking pan.
  8. Form burger mixture into 4 large or 6-8 small patties. Bake them for 30 minutes. If topping with sliced cheese, put it on during the last 2 minutes.
