How To Make Oat and Lentil Burgers

Another healthy, vegetarian main meal!  And I’m very pleased because I made this recipe up myself!  I have been all about porridge for breakfast for a while so have loads of oats about the place which are really cheap, so I’ve been looking at other recipes that use oats.  I found a few for Oat Burgers and made my own recipe.  This was my first attempt. Lentil and Oat burger

  • 1 Can Green Lentils
  • 1 Can Oats (no oats don’t come in cans- I just poured them into the can that I had taken the lentils out of to measure it out)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Onion
  • 4 Spring Onions
  • 1 Grated Carrot
  • 2 Gloves Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard
  • Optional- 1 sachet Linwoods Flaxseed, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Walnuts, Co-Enzyme Q10 (I get these from Holland and Barret for £2.99 for a pack of 7 sachets and have been adding them to my porridge to add extra protein and fibre to my breakfast).
  1. Fry the onions and spring onions.
  2. Microwave the lentils as per instructions on the can (usually 2 mins), then add all the other ingredients in a bowl and mix.  Add the onions once they are brown enough for you.
  3. Shape the mixture into balls and fry each one for a few minutes each side.  I got about 8 burgers from the mixture.
  4. Serve and eat.

I liked the burgers although next time I would add more mustard and perhaps experiment with other seasonings/flavourings.  Adding cheese was a good move!
