How to make homemade lentil burgers

  1. Prepare a sauté with finely chopped carrot and onion.
  2. Let them cook with olive oil and add the lentils. Leave to flavor with salt and pepper for five minutes , then turn off the heat.
  3. In a blender, break up the wholemeal bread soaked in water and blend it together with the lentils. Add the paprika and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Blend again until you get a fairly compact dough. Work the compound obtained with your hands and give it the classic shape of many round discs.
  5. Heat a non-stick pan, grease with a little oil and cook your burgers. Brown them for a couple of minutes on each side to form a crust .

Lentil burgers are ready! You can accompany them with a salad of raw carrot sheets seasoned with oil, salt, lemon and chilli pepper , or enjoy them inside a sandwich with lettuce, onions and tomatoes. Enjoy your meal!

Dried lentil burgers: how to make them with red ones

If you have more time to devote to making these vegan medallions, you can also use dried red lentils. 200 g and a few steps will be enough:

  • Put the finely chopped carrot and onion in the pot and cook with a drizzle of oil to create the ceiling.
  • At this point add the lentils, mix, salt and pepper and add water to cover them. Cook over low heat for at least 20-30 minutes and add hot water (or vegetable stock) as needed.
  • Then proceed with the same steps as for the original recipe, knowing that you can replace stale bread with a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs until you reach the desired consistency.

We recommend keeping the vegan burgers in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days raw , better if wrapped in transparent film so they don't stick. When cooked, you can always keep them in the fridge for 1-2 days and heat them in a pan if necessary. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
