Lentil burgers #2

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Dried red lentils
\N \N Water; to cook
1 cup Bread crumbs; pref. whole wheat
1 large Onion; finely chopped
2 \N Cloves garlic; minced
\N \N Salt and pepper; to taste

Wash lentils thoroughly & pick out any sticks & stones & grit which might get in them. In a large pot, bring the water to a rolling boil. Add lentils & cook for 20-25 minutes until the lentils start to puree. Drain & let cool.

It is not necessary to let them get cold.

Transfer the cooked lentils to a large mixing bowl. Add bread crumbs, garlic & onion & mix thoroughly. Season well.

You then can experiment with herbs & spices. I usually add loads of cajun spice, with healthy measures of parsley, basil & marjoram. You could try thyme or sage. It is your choice.

If the mixture does not hold together well enough, add more bread crumbs.

Form into patties & then cook as you would a regular hamburger in a little oil. Or barbecue. If they are really dry, then they hold together well enough to barbecue.
