Lentil Burgers

These lentil burgers are so good! My mom used to make these because she and my dad used to be vegetarian. This was one of the vegetarian dishes they kept because it is quite tasty.


1 1/2 c lentils
1/2 lb mushrooms, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 carrot, diced
1/2 t minced garlic
1 small onion, diced
1 c walnuts, diced
1 t lemon pepper
1 t Spike seasoning
3 t chili powder
1/2 t dry mustard
1/4 c oats
5 T tomato paste
2 beaten eggs
dash Worcestershire sauce


Soak lentils 4-6 hours or overnight. Cook in soaking water until tender, about 1-1 1/2 hours. Add more water as needed (lentils burn easily). Saute veggies and walnuts in olive oil and seasonings. Combine and saute with lentils and oats. Mash gently so vegetable chunks are not lost. Add tomato paste, eggs, Worcestershire. Mix well and form into flat patties. Chill 1 hour. Broil on both sides.

Serve on hamburger buns with mayo, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, cheese, etc.
