Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Burger Sliders

3/4 cup uncooked brown or green lentils (or yellow split peas)
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil (plus more for frying the burgers, as needed)
1 large yellow onion, minced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon dry mustard
10 mushrooms (about 2-inch diameter), minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound baby spinach, finely minced
1 Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 cup Breadcrumbs
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

Recipe Directions for Lentil Burger Sliders

  1. Place the lentils or peas and water in a medium-small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, partially cover, and cook for about 30 minutes, or until the lentils are soft and the water is completely absorbed. Transfer to a medium-large bowl, add the vinegar and mash with a fork or a potato masher. Set aside.

  2. Place a medium -sized skillet over medium heat, and wait about a minute. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and swirl to coat the pan, then add the onion and saute for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add all the remaining ingredients except the walnuts and bread crumbs, and saute over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender. Turn up the heat for the last minute or so, to let the moisture evaporate.

  3. Stir the sauteed mixture into the lentils or peas, along with the walnuts and bread crumbs. Mix thoroughly, then cover the bowl and chill for at least an hour.

  4. Form 3-inch patties about 1 inch thick, and broil them for 5 to 8 minutes on each side (until golden and crisp). Top with some grated cheese at the last minute, if desired, and let it melt.

  5. Serve hot, with desired accoutrements.
