Lentil Burgers

Hmm, well the mobile phone pic just doesn't do them justice, they are really yummy.

I really love lentil burgers. Tonight is lentil burgers and salad and thought I'd share the recipe.

Fry in fry pan:
1 onion chopped finely
2 carrots grated

Add 1 cup washed red split lentils, add water to cover.
1 teaspoon coriander and simmer all for about 15 mins till soft.

Drain and mix 1 cup bread crumbs and 2 tablespoon peanut butter (optional) and 1 egg.
Mix and form patties. Coat in flour if you want.

Fry up on bbq to save doing a zillion loads in the fry pan!

Thanks for the recipe!
Do you have a suggestion as to what could replace the peanut butter? I'm allergic. :-)

Bookbec, you can easily leave out the peanut butter. It helps to hold them together and slight addition to flavour,however, I've made them for years with out because we had one that didn't like it in there. They were perfect and I don't think I even needed to add another egg, which you could do of course if the patties aren't holding nicely. HTH :o)
