Lentil burgers

ingredients

  • 500 grams of lentils
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 pepper green
  • 1 carrot
  • Various spices (black pepper, oregano)
  • vegetable broth
  • olive or sunflower oil
  • breadcrumbs or wheat flour

preparation

Cook the lentils with half an onion and one pepper until smooth. Drain and save the lentils only. Grind the lentils with a blender until you get a homogeneous mass and add a pinch of salt. While you heat a pan with a dash of oil, chop all the vegetables, add some broth and sauté in a pan over medium-high heat.

When it starts to turn golden in appearance, add the lentils to the pan, mix and let heat for a minute. Turn off the heat and place in a bowl. Take a piece of dough with wet hands and shape it into a hamburger or croquette. Optionally we can pass them through a little breadcrumbs. Let them sit in the fridge all night or in the freezer for 20 minutes so they firm up and don’t fall apart easily. Heat some oil in a pan and fry the burgers until golden brown. Serve alone or with bread and salad.
