Veggie Burger with Lentils and Mushrooms
- a onion chopped
- some finely chopped garlic
- 250g of portobello mushrooms (the small brownish ones)
- a tin of brown lentils
- a little bit of flour
- some lemon juice
- some olive oil
- salt and pepper
- some fresh basil
- burger buns
- sliced tomato
Add the chopped onions and some olive oil to a pan and saute until soft, add the garlic. Chop the mushrooms into quarters (or smaller) and add to the pan, let them cook for a couple of minutes, turning every now and again.
Drain the lentils and place on a dinner plate, smash with a fork or a potato masher into a paste. Add a little lemon juice, some shredded basil, season and mix. Add the onions and mushrooms to the lentil paste and combine everything well. Allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes – this lets it stick together better.
Form into rounds, dip in a little flour, to coat the outside, and place into a heated pan with a little olive oil. Cook on either side for 4-5 minutes, until golden. Serve on a bun with lettuce, tomato, sprouts and hummus.
