cookingforpeanuts 🌱Easy 6-Ingredient Lentil Burgers (oil-free option) SWIPE🌱ON BLOG 💚These patties are so good! Serve as falafels, burgers or with a salad. They hold together amazingly well. Freeze for later use. Enjoy!
✅Serves 6 (makes 12 patties)
1 ½ cups dried red lentils
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 large shallot or 1 small onion, small dice (about 1/3 cup)
1/3 cup grated carrots dried with paper towel-optional (about 3 small)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Neutral cooking oil for pan frying (optional)
✅Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
✅Soak the lentils in enough water to cover by about 2 inches for two hours. Rinse and drain.
✅Add the drained lentils, garlic, shallot, carrot, tomato paste, cilantro, salt, and black pepper to a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture holds together, scraping the sides of the canister as needed. The batter will feel sticky. Don’t worry.
✅Scoop out ¼ cup of the mixture at a time. Shape into patties, about ½ inch thick.
✅Option 1: Bake the patties for 10 minutes. Flip them over and bake for about 10 minutes more, or until crispy on both sides.
✅Option 2: Heat enough oil in a large nonstick skillet to reach about halfway up the sides of the patties. Cook the patties for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and crispy. (You may need to do this in batches so as not to overcrowd the skillet.) Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
