Lentil Walnut Burger

Lentil Walnut Burger
I am late for this month's Lentil theme JFI#3 (Jihva for ingredients) hosted by Sailu. I hope she accepts my late entry.

I made Lentil-Walnut burger for our mini in-house barbeque for 4th of July. I saw them made on TV (pbs - channel 13) few weeks ago and wanted to give them a try(above pic is courtesy pbs tv). Adding cumin and coriander powders gave the burgers an Indian taste.

Ingredients

Green Lentils - cooked, drained and cooled
¾ cup
Toasted Walnuts - cooled
¾ cup
Dried breadcrumbs - (I used 3 potato bread slices and it worked just fine)
1/3 cup
Garlic
3 cloves
Ground Cumin
2 tsp
Ground Coriander
2 tsp
Red pepper flakes
½ tsp
Large Egg
1
Olive oil
1tbsp
Salt and pepper
to taste

Steps

  1. In a food processor, combine walnuts, breadcrumbs (or bread slices), garlic, cumin, coriander, pepper flakes, salt (I used 1 ½ tsp and it was just right, but if you eat less salt, reduce the amount), and ¼ tsp pepper; process until finely ground.
  2. Add lentils and oil; pulse until coarsely chopped (some lentils should remain whole).
  3. In a large bowl, whisk egg and add lentil mixture; mix well.
  4. Divide mixture into equal size parts; roll into balls, and flatten with the palm of your hand into ¾ inch thick patties (I made 9 medium size patties).
  5. Heat a large nonstick skillet. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Add burgers; cook over medium-low heat until crisp and browned, turning gently with a spatula, 8 to 10 minutes per side.
  7. Serve hot.

I made Indira’s Sesame buns and had our burgers with mayo, ketchup and cheese. Really healthy and not very difficult to put together.
