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.
