Quinoa-Lentil Veggie Burgers:

6 ounces brown or white mushrooms

2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 Cup of chopped onion

3 large garlic cloves, minced

1 Tablespoon wheat-free tamari or soy sauce

1/4 Cup chopped fresh parsley

2 Tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

1 (15 ounce) can cooked lentils, rinsed and drained

1 large egg beaten

1/2 Cup (or more) breadcrumbs

4 Tablespoon grated parmesan cheese

4 Teaspoon coarse or whole grain Dijon mustard

For the Toppings/garnish

5 slices mozzarella or jack cheese

5 whole grain or gluten-free buns

Lettuce leaves

5 large slices tomato

 

These are such a great alternative to hamburgers. You can cook them in the house or in no time BBQ season will be here, making this recipe a great option for all those fun times.

  2.  Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a sauté’ in frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion until soft. Add garlic and tamari. Cook 1 more minute.
  3. Add mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms release their moisture and are almost dry. Add parsley, oregano, and black pepper. Add lentils and stir well.
  4. Put lentil mixture into food processor, and pulse mixture to grind. and 7 times.
  5. In large bowl, combine mushroom-lentil mixture with beaten egg, quinoa bread crumbs, Parmesan, and mustard. Moisture level of mixture may vary with the type of bread crumbs used. It should be very moist, but not be wet. If it feels wet, add bread crumbs 1 tablespoon at a time.
  6. Divide into 5 portions, about a generous 1/2 cup each. Roll each portion into a ball, then flatten to form a patty. Place on patties on flat plate cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or over night
