Vegan Spicy Brown Lentil Burger 🍔

Updated: May 15, 2019

We all love our burgers right ?  We have seen burgers made from every animal in the book including chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, and more. But what if I told you that you can make an equally satisfying (yet 100x more healthy) burger utilizing only plant based ingredients ? Yes, no harm to the animals and no harm to your internal organs.

In fact, there are many beans that can attribute to the tasty plant based burgers that are becoming more popular including black beans, chickpeas, and navy beans. However, today we are applauding The Geneus Life for creating an awesome burger from brown lentils.


Brown lentil is so nutritious and provides with all of the essentials to help us sustain a healthy functioning body (and not an animal graveyard). Lentils, being a good source of dietary fiber, also have low calories, and other nutritious components such as molybdenum, folate, tryptophan, manganese, iron, phosphorous, copper, vitamin B1, and potassium. The good stuff, right!?


Check out the super easy process in creating your very own nutrient dense lentil burger today.

Process

In order to recreate this delicious vegan burger follow these quick and easy steps !  To best expedite the process and move to the first step, we recommend that you first soak the brown lentils and walnuts for 7 hours or overnight for the best result. 


Step 1: combine soaked lentils, soaked walnuts, raisins, coconut oil, bread crumbs, bell pepper, onion, and basil and place into a food processor and pulse/blend for 1 minute.

Step 2: after combining the above in a food processor, then add the remaining spices and seasonings such as the nutritional yeast, Italian seasoning, Himalayan salt, cayenne pepper, habanero pepper, chili powder, paprika and blend again. Knowing that some individuals may have sodium restriction or health condition permitting reduced salt use, you may salt per taste.

Step 3: separate the blended items in balls, form them into patties and then place on a parchment sheet. This mixture should make about 7 or 8 patties.

Step 4: place burger patties in the oven and bake on 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Don't for get to flip them over at the 15 minute mark to ensure even cooking throughout.

Step 5: let the patties cool and enjoy them with you favorite side dishes !
