ingredients

  • Veggie Burgers:
  • 1 egg, or flax egg equivalent (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus some for cooking the burgers
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onions
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon Real Salt
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 ¾ cup cooked brown lentils
  • ¾ cup cooked red quinoa
  • ¼ cup oat flour (see note)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Avocado Sauce:
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper

instructions

  1. Veggie Burgers:
  2. If using a flax egg substitute, mix the flax and water and set aside. (see note)
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium flame. Add the onions, garlic, and carrots, and sauté until the onions are soft. Transfer to a food processor bowl. Pulse the cooked vegetables with the sun-dried tomatoes, walnuts and parsley until finely chopped. Add the salt, chili powder, paprika, and about half of the lentils. Pulse to combine. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Stir in the remaining lentils, quinoa, and the egg or flax egg. (see note) Stir in oat flour. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  5. Avocado Sauce:
  6. Blend the water, lemon juice, avocado, garlic salt and cayenne in the blender, scraping down the sides as needed. It's OK if the sauce is not totally smooth. Scrape into a small serving bowl.
  7. Shape and cook the Veggie Burgers:
  8. Measure about 1/3 cup of lentil and quinoa mix per veggie burger, packing the measuring cup well. Place on an oiled baking sheet or silicone baking mat and shape into patties, about 3 inches wide and 1/2-inch thick. Sprinkle the tops with salt and pepper.
  9. Heat a skillet, preferably non-stick, on medium-high flame. Brush pan with oil or spray with cooking spray. Cook veggie burgers until golden brown, about 15 minutes on each side, sprinkling salt and pepper on the second side after flipping.
  10. Serve with avocado sauce, and your favorite burger fixings.

notes

 

  • Flax eggs work great as vegan substitutes for chicken eggs. For one flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds and 2 tablespoons warm water in a small cup or bowl. Set aside until the flax absorbs the water and becomes mucus-like.
  • Purchase oat flour, or make your own—by whirling rolled oats in the food processor.
