Fiber-packed lentils lend this meatless burger nutritional pizzazz. They also hold their own next to meatier varieties, since lentils form a complete protein when paired with a whole grain (in this case, brown rice).

Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Burgers

1 cup dried green lentils
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 celery stalks, minced
1 cup leeks, sliced
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
30 g spicy brown mustard
50 g Tomato Paste No Salt Added
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp ground cumin
1 cup cooked rice
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Lentil Burgers

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook lentils according to package directions.

  2. In a large bowl, mix garlic, onion, celery, leeks, flaxseed, Dijon, tomato paste and spices. When lentils are cooked, mash them with the back of a fork, leaving some whole. Add mashed lentils and rice to bowl. Mix all ingredients together.

  3. Heat oil in a medium saucepan on medium-high. While oil is heating, form lentil-rice mixture into 6 lentil patties. Add them to pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until light brown. Transfer patties to prepared baking sheet and cook in oven for 15 minutes to warm through. Serve with a side salad and topped with diced tomatoes and avocado, if desired.
