This is a delicious vegetarian recipe for lentil veggie burger patties, with vegan version too!
Serves: 15+ red lentil patties
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1 bunch parsley, chopped
  • 1 bunch dill, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsps ground flax seeds+ 3 Tbsps water (or one large egg)
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • 4 garlic cloves, mashed
  • sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • breadcrumbs – about ⅔ cup, more or less
  1. Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. Add lentils in a pot and cover them with water. From the moment they start boiling, let them boil for about 15 minutes and then remove from heat.
  3. Strain the lentils very well and put them in a large bowl.
  4. Start mashing them a little, using a fork.
  5. Add egg/flax egg, inactive yeast makes, chopped onion, parsley, dill, mashed garlic, breadcrumbs, sea salt, and pepper.
  6. Using a fork, or your hands, start mixing the composition. It has to be sticky and easy to mold. If it’s not it means that you didn’t strain the lentils very good and the composition is too wet. No problem, just add breadcrumbs until it has a dough-like consistency.
  7. Spray a non-stick pan with some oil. Not too much.
  8. Put the remaining breadcrumbs on a large plate.
  9. Make the patties and then dip them in the breadcrumbs.
  10. Put each patty on the frying pan and let it fry about 2 minutes on each side.
  11. That’s it! Serve with mashed potatoes or use them to make burgers and sandwiches.
You can bake them too. Grease a large pan and place the patties. Cook 15 minutes on one side and another 15 on the other, at 180C.

    Not trying to be critical but for 15 patties these burgers would be like 50 calories each. It seems like you would have to eat a bunch of them to make a meal out of it. Is there something I’m missing? maybe it’s not supposed to be dinner?

    P.S. I used myfitnesspal to calculate nutrients

    1. Ruxandra

      Hi Braden! I usually eat min. 4 patties per meal. 🙂 I make them the size of half my palm. My bf actually eats 6 per meal, with a side of potatoes or grilled veggies most of the time. The caloric intake is ok, in my opinion. For my portion, you get around 350-400kcal per meal.

        *Mention* That caloric intake is calculated with a side of poatatoes or grilled veggies. I never eat them just as they are. I always like to add a side of something.

    Suna excelent, insa ma intreb daca ar avea oare acelasi gust bun daca le-as pune in cuptor? Incerc pe cat posibil sa evit prajelile.

    Foarte interesante retetele, ma plimb de vreo 3 ore pe aici. Cred ca ai avea si mai multi vizitatori daca ai avea si o versiune in romana a blogului. Sunt foarte multe persoane in Romania in cautare de retete vegetariene, iar siteul tau arata excelent si e plin de retete care merita incercate. Dar esti greu de gasit:(.
