Preparation
STEP 1

Combine all ingredients in the work bowl of a food processor. Process until well blended, but still slightly chunky. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.

STEP 2

Form into four patties. Heat a lightly oiled non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties (in batches if necessary) until browned and crisp on the outside and just cooked through. Serve hot with your favorite burger buns and toppings.

Options

* About 1/2--2/3 cup dried lentils, rinsed and cooked in salted boiling water for 20-30 minutes or until tender, and drained.
