Spicy Lentil Burgers

makes 8 patties

1/2 cup lentils, rinsed
1/2 cup brown rice
1 medium onion, diced
1 carrot shredded
4 cloves garlic
1 cube tomato chipolte caldo
2 1/2 cups water

Combine all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer and boil gently until rice and lentils are soft and any excess liquid has been absorbed, approximately. Drain in a colander and let cool. Process in blender or food processor until smooth. Form into patties about 3 inches in diameter.
Heat a frying pan or griddle on medium high heat, add about a tablespoon of oil, when the oil is hot fry the patties, cooking on both sides until crisp. This can take up to 10 minutes depending upon the thickness of the patties and the temperature of the pan. Serve hot.

  1. Amanda, the same thing I would serve with any other burger or meat patty. Rice, salad, a vegetable or put it in a sandwich.

  2. These sound yummy, what exactly do you serve with them?
