Wow! This lentil patty had so much flavor and while it was much softer than a more conventional burger, I loved the texture. I took the photo plain, but you could certainly dress this up with lettuce, tomato, and pickles, or maybe sour cream and avocado. While the recipe requires minimal effort, it takes over 2 hours between the start and finish, so plan ahead. They are worth it though!
1 c. lentils
1 carrot, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3 c. vegetable broth
1/2 c. bulgur
1 T ketchup
1 T mustard
1 T Heinz 57 sauce
Bring lentils, carrot, celery, and vegetable broth to a boil, and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes. Add bulgur, ketchup, mustard, and sauce and continue cooking on low for 15 minutes. The mixture will be very thick. Remove from heat and let stand until cool to the touch.
Form into patties, and place on cookie sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, turning halfway through.

Hey Kerry, What can you use instead of mustard and Ketchup…otherwise they sound completely yum-dili-yum-cious! -Lee
Lee, I’d suggest BBQ sauce, or maybe some Tabasco if you like things hot? Maybe some salsa? Let me know how it goes!
