Easy Lentil Veggie Burgers


Easy Lentil Veggie Burgers (vegan)

Makes 6 burgers

These vegan veggie burgers are packed with fiber, protein, and flavor. Serve on top of greens or in a pita topped with avocado, salsa, and hot sauce.


  • 1/2 cup dried green lentils
  • 1 cup garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 5 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice (I used 90 second rice)
  • Cooking spray to grease baking sheet


Preheat oven to 375.

1) Cook lentils (and brown rice, if not using 90 second rice like I did — cook about 1/2 cup dry to get 1 cup cooked) according to package directions.

2) While the lentils are cooking, add garbanzo beans, garlic, mushrooms, and olive oil to food processor and process 30 seconds until somewhat uniform. Remove mixture and put in a large bowl.

3) Add cooked and drained lentils and all other ingredients to the bowl. Mix and mash until contents are evenly spread out.

4) Form mixture into 6 patties and place on greased or sprayed cooking sheet.

5) Bake 20 minutes, flipping once half way through.

    Recipe sounds delicious, except for the mushrooms. Why are mushrooms part of a “veggie” burger when mushrooms are a FUNGUS, not a veggie? I’ve always wondered about it, and now you may have the answer for me.

  2. 3

    I just like the texture mushrooms add – I guess others do as well!
