Julie's Lentil-Nut Mushroom Burgers

I make batches of this veggie burger, and freeze patties for later. I usually serve it in pita bread. Yum! Adapted (tweaked and additional ingredients) from a recipe in the original Moosewood Cookbook recipe titled "Lentil-Walnut Burgers." Prep time includes chilling.

ingredients

directions

  • Using a food processor, finely mince the appropriate ingredients listed above.
  • In a saucepan, bring the lentils, vinegar, oil, and water to a boil.
  • Reduce the temperature, and simmer, partly-covered, 30 minutes or until the lentils are soft and the liquid is absorbed.
  • In the meantime (while lentils are cooking), saute remaining ingredients together over medium heat in butter and additional olive oil for 10 to 15 minutes and all are tender.
  • When lentils are soft, and liquid is gone, place in large bowl and mash (or use food processor).
  • Add the mushroom mixture to the mashed or processed lentils, and mix well.
  • Chill for about 1 hour.
  • Make 4-inch patties from chilled mixture.
  • Note: uncooked burgers may be individually wrapped and frozen. For freezing, make patties, place wax paper between each patty and stack; wrap well and freeze (or wrap individually).
  • To cook: Fry burgers in butter until brown, *or* broil about 8 minutes on each side. Try putting sesame seeds in pan to keep burgers from sticking to pan, if it is a problem.
  • Serve either as patties, as burgers in a whole-wheat bun, or filling for a pita.
  • Good with cheese melted on top, basil sprinkled on each burger is tasty also.

    This recipe is very confusing, with no indicating of which ingredients to chop and cook. I had to go back to the original Moosewood cookbook after trying to get through this one.

    Really nice! I made two changes: as I was trying to use up veggie baked beans, I used instead of lentils, I also left out wine but in its place used some vegetable broth. I lightly sauted them(need to watch closely), but today I sprayed with slightly with olive oil and prepared in my George Forman grill. Great! Thanks Julesong.
