The Sprouted Blog
One of my favourite things about summer is going to the Farmer's Market. There are a ton of them in New York, but my favourite is the one in McCarren Park. It's not too big and overwhelming, and it's enveloped by a tree-lined walkway. I love checking out what's in season, and finding ways to add them to my meals. This week, I came home with fresh garden tomatoes, red and white onion, lettuce, carrots, and kale. I've been wanting to try making lentil burgers for a while now, and WOW, they are SO good!
And the best part is, I got to use almost everything I found at the market. Fresh produce, straight from the farmers themselves. With a few ingredients from the pantry, these burgers are so easy to make. I was surprised at how easy it was, actually. And the flaxseed gel I used held them together like eggs would (The recipe is also gluten-free and vegan).
Here's what you need:
- Cooked, Sprouted Lentils
- flax gel (1 part Sprouted Flaxseed Powder,
- diced onion
- Worcestershire sauce
- mushrooms (optional)
And here's all you do:
- Mix everything in a food processor or blender, except for 1/4 cup sprouted lentils.
- Add remaining lentils and stir
- Use your hands (or a patty press) to shape into patties
- Fry in a few tbsp. oil, or barbecue, and there you have it!
Wasn't that easy? Feel free to add any of your favourite garnishes. I like tomatoes, red onion, avocado, and lettuce.
