The Non-Dairy Queen: Lentil Burgers (GF, V)

by Sarena Shasteen in Featured Articles, Gluten Free, Meatless Mondays, Recipes
Lentils are, by far, my favorite beans. They are really quick to cook and I think they make the best bean burgers! My boys love these burgers more than beef burgers and I have one super picky eater. I use salsa in this recipe so you don’t have to go through the steps of cutting onions or other vegetables. They have a nice firm texture to them and hold up nicely on a salad or a bun. You can freeze them by placing wax paper between the layers so you can take out as many as you need at a time.

Lentil Burgers

Makes 8 burgers

  • 1 cup Lentils
  • 4 cups Water
  • 1-1/2 cups Quick Oats
  • 3/4 cup Salsa
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper

Place the lentils in 4 cups water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until done. Pour off the excess water. Allow to slightly cool. Next add oats through pepper to the lentils and mix thoroughly. Place in the refrigerator and allow to cool completely. When ready to make, scoop out about 1/2 cup servings, form into a patty and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, flipping after 30 minutes.
