Quick And Simple Vegan Lentil Burgers
Recently I have been trying to be more vegan, after years of being a vegetarian, and have found that simple vegan recipes are very hard to find. These burgers however are not only healthy and quick to make, the ingredients are very cheap making it the ideal meal, whether you are vegan or not!
What you will need:
1 finely chopped onion
1 grated large carrot (or two small carrots)
Just under half a cup of rolled oats
1.5 to 2 cups of split red lentils
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
Garlic salt and pepper
Half a cup of breadcrumbs
2 cups of water
The recipe should make 4 big burgers or if, like me, you like smaller ones, it should make around 7-8.
Firstly put your lentils in a saucepan with the water and boil for around 30 minutes.
Whilst the lentils are boiling put the onion and carrot in a frying pan with some olive oil and fry for about 5 minutes, or until soft.
When the carrot and onions are cooked add the breadcrumbs, oats, soy sauce, garlic salt and seasoning to the pan.
When the lentils are done add them to the bowl and stir well (if you're not vegan you could add an egg at this point to bind the mixture a bit more).
Pick up some of the mixture and mould into a burger shape and pan fry in olive oil for about two minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.
Top with vegan cheese and serve with salad for a healthy and delicious meal!
