Lentil Quinoa Veggie Burgers

Let me begin by saying that veggie burgers are hard. Or shall I say, I’ve found that making an easy and tasty veggie burger is hard. But that said, I think I finally got it; this one’s a keeper. A shout out goes to my buddy J, for the box of quinoa she offered as first prize in a caption contest she had on Facebook.

1/2 cup quinoa, dried
1/2 cup brown lentils, dried
1 sweet potato, cooked and mashed
1 rib celery, diced
1 carrot, grated
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons mayonnaise*
1 egg*
1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
seasonings to taste
oil, for sautéing

Prepare quinoa and lentils as directed and set aside

Sauté celery, onion, carrot, and garlic

When the ingredients are prepared, combine all listed, and mix well

Season to taste with your favorite seasonings: salt, pepper, chili powder, curry, whatever you like

Chill in the fridge for about an hour
form into patties
dust lightly with flour on both sides
and fry until golden brown

Makes 8 generous burgers and freeze well.

* Vegetarians use appropriate replacements if so inclined.

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
