( dry measure)
whole grain flour
1 -2 teaspoon
- Before you begin, the lentils must be fully cooked. Gently boil them in enough water to cover them by 2 inches, with NO salt. Lentils will take about 30 minutes to cook.
- While they cook, dice the onion and grate the carrots.
- Drain the cooked lentils and put them in a bowl with the carrots and onion. Mash them a bit, but not too much, and add enough flour to get them to the point where they will stick together. You may also need to add a bit of water. Season the mix with the spices, salt & pepper and stir them through well.
- With your hands, form the lentil mix into burger shapes. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to a heated pan and lay the burgers inches Leave them for about 10 minutes on the first side, flip, and cook another 5-7 minutes. Put the burgers in an oven on low heat to keep them warm while you cook the second batch.
