I made these burgers for Mum, Dad and Ben the other night and they were excellent. I've been buying the Celebrate Health lentils for a while but hadn't made any of their recipes until now. I love these because they are already seasoned. They also have a Mediterranean flavour as well as other products such as Quinoa, recipe bases (sauces) and stock. You can buy them at Coles in the health food section. This recipe makes about 8 patties so there was enough for me to take a burger to work the next day (hence the last photo with strange background) - bonus!
1 packet Celebrate Health Moroccan Lentils (or plain lentils cooked with moroccan seasoning)
1 sweet potato, peeled, cooked and mashed
2 spring onions, finely chopped (I used some red onion instead)
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup bread crumbs (for crumbing)
Vegetable oil for frying
Hummus, salads and bread rolls - whatever takes your fancy. I also added sweet chilli sauce to my burger.
Cook lentils as per packet directions and the sweet potato. Set both aside to cool. Mix the lentils, mashed sweet potato, onion, egg and 1/4 cup bread crumbs until well combined. Divide mixture into about 8 patties, roll and dust with the remaining bread crumbs until lightly coated. Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat and fry patties until golden brown. Serve warm with salad, hummus and anything else you like on a bread roll.
