Green lentil, potato and mushroom burgers

serves 6
30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g of lentils, green, tinned
  • 300g of potatoes, boiled or steamed until tender
  • 250g of mushrooms, sliced
  • 90g of porridge oats
  • 3 tsp allspice powder
  • 3 tsp linseed
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • salt
  • black pepper

Method

1
Rinse the green lentils well and set aside until you need them
2
Sauté the mushrooms in the olive oil and garlic until tender and juicy. Season well, then whizz in a blender or food processor until quite fine
3
Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mash until well combined. Season
4
Flour your hands and take scoops of the mixture from the bowl, roll into balls and then squash into a burger-sized patties. Chill until you are ready to cook
5
Fire up the barbie and once it is hot enough cook the burgers until golden brown and crisp. As these are veggie burgers, you don’t have to worry about the cooking. They are safe to eat raw. I like mine fairly charred!

Alternatively, you can fry them in a little oil for a few minutes on each side or bake them in the oven until golden and crisp
