Hey y’all!! Do you have any family or friends who are vegan or pescatarian? Are they coming over to celebrate the holiday with you and your family? If you do, I have a great recipe for lentil burgers that I want to share!! These burgers can be cooked on the grill or as I’m going to share in this recipe-in the air fryer!!!!
I’m choosing to make them in the air fryer because these literally take 8-10min to make and since this recipe is not only for family BBQ’s, I thought, why not give my readers another option on how to cook them!
1 14oz can of vegetable broth
1c of dried lentils, Rinsed
1 small carrot shredded
¼ c of chopped mushrooms
¼ c plain panko break crumbs
½ onion chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1tsp of Italian seasoning
Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add lentils. Reduce heat to low. Cook covered for about 30 minutes. Allow lentils to cool.
In a blender or food processor, pulse to chopped. Do not over process, you want the mixture to have a chunky like texture. Add mixture to a separate bowl and add egg, panko bread crumbs, onion, garlic and Italian seasoning. Refrigerate for 2hrs to firm up.
Shape mixture into patties (Should get about 4 patties)
Warm Air fryer to 390 degrees. Spray with nonstick spray. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until nice and brown. Serve on rolls, a bed of lettuce or like I did here, toasted wheat bread slices!
