Spicy Lentil Burgers

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by buttercup0009

I got this recipe out of "The WIC Bean Book." I altered it a little to fit my tastes, adding chili powder and the veggie cheese. The chili powder is appx. is use your best jugdement. These burgers turned out really good; nice and tender, not hard like many of the frozen patties you can buy. Even my husband "the meat eater" liked these!

Super good! I did add some extra seasoning, poultry seasoning and hot sauce. They cooked up really nice and looked a lot like a regular burger. I'm freezing the extra patties to have on hand for a quick, healthy meal. Thanks for posting the recipe.
