This is a delicious vegetarian recipe for lentil veggie burger patties, with vegan version too!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 200g (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 1 large egg - alternatively, you can use 1 Tbsp of psyllium husks
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • 4 garlic cloves, mashed
  • sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • breadcrumbs – about 80g (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.

Thank you! :) Glad you liked the recipe!

I'd really like to try this, it looks jummy! And I'm glad you gave an alternative for the breadcrumbs, since I don't eat wheat either. Just wondering: how much chickpea or brown rice flour would you use in this recipe?

Hi, An! The same amount as breadcrumbs, about 2/3 cup.

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

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.

Is there a substitute for bread crumb? I am allergic to wheat. Thank you

Sure! I recently gave up gluten and I'm using chickpea or brown rice flour. It's perfect. :)
