Lentil and Walnut Burger

Vegan Lentil and Walnut Burger

Let’s toast to the best Vegan Lentil and Walnut Burger full of flavor and deliciousness! *raises her cup of coffee and then realizes that it’s never too early in the morning to talk about burgers*

Because this veganized Burger is TOO GOOD, TOO GUILT-FREE and we can STILL ATTEND THE FAMILY BBQ! Plus we brought something to put on the grill! Nobody will even notice these meatless patties on the grill rack, in-between steaks and sausages! But once they do, they get curious and so I shared 3 of my 4 patties that I had prepped for our fest. I wasn’t trying to be selfish by bringing only a few but I just knew the birthday crowd includes some big ol’ meat eaters.

After a few people tried them and fell in love, I handed out the recipe and promised that I will bring patties for everyone next time around!

Happy faces!

 

Now that we know that these are bbq-approved, it’s totally up to you whether to pan fry or grill them. But one thing is for sure: they will be made on repeat and never be a disappointment!

Be prepared for a nutty and rich taste combined with fresh herbs and rustic spices thanks to walnut, cilantro and cumin. Wowzers – what a combo!!! Pick your toppings and sauce of choice, you have endless options to tailor this meal to your liking. I chose the typical lettuce, tomato and onion and added sliced avocado and sesame seeds.

The top and bottom bun are covered in homemade hummus and my favorite bbq sauce. Not feeling like a whole wheat (burger freak)? – Replace the bun by a brioche or sourdough! This recipe leaves room for creativity and moments like “creating a meal with stuff that’s in my fridge“!

To make the Lentil and Walnut patties you literally only need one kitchen utensil which is your food processor. And a pan of course to give these a nice dark brown crust.

Instructions
  1. Prepare flax egg by mixing 1 TBSP ground flax seeds with 2 TBSP water and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Fill all the Burger Patty ingredients -except bread crumbs- into a food processor. Add flax egg. Pulse until everything is combined but still has texture, not smooth.
  3. Mix in bread crumbs, separate mixture into 4 and gently form 4 large patties.
  4. In a skillet fry patties over medium heat on each side for about 5 minutes using coconut oil.
  5. While patties are frying wash lettuce and slice avocado, onion and tomato.
  6. Toast burger buns and coat top and bottom with your favorite sauce. (I used hummus and bbq sauce.)
  7. When patties are done put together your burger. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the patty and voilá!
Recipe Notes

I recommend using rubber gloves and wet them when making the patties.
