- 3/4 cup walnuts, toasted cooled

- 3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons ground coriander
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1In a food processor, combine walnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, cumin, coriander, pepper flakes, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; process until finely ground. Add lentils and 1 tablespoon oil; pulse until coarsely chopped (some lentils should remain whole).

- 3Heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add burgers; cook over medium-low heat until crisp and browned, turning gently with a thin-edged spatula, 8 to 10 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
