Veggie Burgers

These wholesome burgers are a vegetarian's dream.


3/4 cup dry lentils
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 cup onion, minced
5 large garlic cloves, minced
10 large mushrooms, minced
1/2 cup walnut bits
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup bread crumbs


In a small saucepan, bring lentils and water to boil. Reduce heat, partially cover and simmer for 25 minutes until all liquid is absorbed. Place lentils in a bowl. Add vinegar and mash thoroughly. Set aside.

In a medium-size skillet, heat oil. Sauté onions over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Mix in next 5 ingredients. Continue to sauté until vegetables are tender, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Combine lentils, vegetable mixture, and bread crumbs. Blend well. Chill mixture for 1 hour before forming burgers.

When ready to cook, shape into 4-inch burgers. Heat small amount of oil in skillet. Sauté burgers until heated through and crusty on the outside, or, if preferred, broil for 5 to 8 minutes on each side.

Serves: 4-6
