Recipe Ingredients for Red-Lentil Burgers

2 cups water
3/4 cup dried red lentils
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup onion
1/2 cup carrot
3 garlic cloves
2 cups mushrooms
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons red wine
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 large egg whites
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Recipe Directions for Red-Lentil Burgers

  1. To prepare burgers, combine water, lentils, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes. Drain; set aside.

  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, and 3 garlic cloves; sauté for 3 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, mushrooms, marjoram, and pepper; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine; cook 1 minute or until liquid almost evaporates. Place onion mixture in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add the lentils, breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and egg whites. Cover and chill 30 minutes (to help firm up the mixture).

  3. Divide the lentil mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each portion into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Heat the vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add lentil patties, and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
