1 cup dry lentils, well rinsed
2 1⁄2 cups water
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1⁄2 medium onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3⁄4 cup rolled oats, finely ground
3⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
Boil lentils in the water with the salt for around 45 minutes. Lentils will be soft and most of the water will be gone.
Fry the onions and carrot in the oil until soft, it will take about 5 minutes.
In a bowl mix the cooked ingredients with the pepper, soy sauce, oats and bread cumbs.
While still warm form the mixture into patties, it will make 8-10 burgers.
Burgers can then be shallow fried for 1-2 minutes on each side or baked at 200C for 15 minutes.
