Omnivore-approved lentilburger

After several tries that were often “too dry” for my omnivore’s taste, I managed to come up with this one! Several ingredients can be replaced if you don’t have them. Also, I don’t know a lot about this but I believe it is totally gluten free. 🙂

Omnivore-approved lentilburger

20~30 minutes // 330kcal

* IngrEdients *

  • 45g lentils (I used a mix of red lentils and beluga lentils)
  • 25g quinoa flakes (probably also works with other cereal flakes, but I like the texture these ones give to burgers)
  • bouillon powder
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp barbecue sauce (or bulldog sauce, or other more or less spicy sauce)
  • 1/2 tbsp corn starch dissolved in 1 tbsp water
  • paprika powder
  • 1tsp olive oil

* ReCIPE *

  • Cook the lentils.
  • When they are cooked, add the other ingredients except the olive oil in the order hereabove. Stir every time before adding a new ingredient. Add a little bit of water if necessary: the mixture must be a little runny, otherwise the burger will become to dry while cooking.
  • Warm up the oil in a pan. Pour the dough and quickly give it a shape using a fork or a spatula. After a couple of minutes, flip it to cook the other side.
  • Bon appétit!
