|I have an awful camera for making food look appetizing|
I would like to thank Heather Nauta from HealthyVeganRecipes.net for posting this recipe because it has been the ONLY veggie burgers that haven't fallen apart on me, and they have been the most nutritional I have ever had. I have added to the recipe a bit, but I will still give credit where credit is due: check out the recipe here "Lentil Burger Recipe"
***Recipe makes approximately 12 patties - My partner and I already had 3 each before I took the picture ;) They're delicious - don't be weird-ed out by the combination of carrot, zucchini, and lentils.
Cook lentils for 15-20 minutes. While waiting on your lentils to cook, grate carrots, onion, and zucchini.
The key to cooking good veggie burgers is to fry the hell out of one side for at least 10 minutes (and cover with lid so that it will bake all the way through and mold together.) But before you fry them, you must make sure the patties are completely molded together and aren't falling apart in your hand. So, be sure to add enough flour to create a firm pattie. Don't worry about adding more flour because you probably aren't doing it wrong -- everyone will come out with a different consistency for each batch. Watch how Heather makes her burgers in the link above for an instructional video.
Once your lentils have cooked, drain and add to bowl of grated veggies; then add flour and seasonings. Mold patties and place on lightly (and evenly) oiled pan with 1 tbsp of oil. Set to low to medium heat and cover the pan with it's lid. Remember to fry the patties on one side for 10 minutes and about 5-7 minutes on the other side.
