      This is my go-to when I make burgers at home. Since I am a vegetarian, I add an egg to help them stay together, but honestly they stick together pretty well anyway. You can also add about a tablespoon of egg replacer with water if you prefer to keep them vegan.

      The last time I made these, I also toasted 1/2 cup of quinoa in a frying pan before adding it to cook with the lentils. The nutrition boost and nutty flavor are great!

      I use a 1/2 cup measure to form each patty, and get almost exactly 8 burgers each time. We eat 2 and freeze six for easy weeknights later on. I also made them for a new mom and dad who are vegan, and froze them so they could make meals easily during their son's first weeks. They freeze really well, and mom and dad said they were easy to throw in the pan from frozen on a low heat, and they tasted great.

      Enjoy! Thanks for the great recipe!

      I have made this recipe quite a few times and it is by far the best veggie burger recipe that I have ever encountered. Not only are these simple to make, they taste fabulous and the lentils add a really unique flavor. However, the lentils do not really need 45 minutes to cook. Also, I have never bothered with grinding the oats and they still taste wonderful!

      These lentil burgers are amazing!! I did have to tweak the recipe a little bit. I have a gluten allergy, so I omitted the breadcrumbs and used a full cup of oats and half a cup of cornmeal instead. I also seasoned with some chili powder and cumin and added some frozen corn and sweet red pepper into the mix. Delicious!
