Red Lentil Burgers
1-1/2 cups red lentils
Food processor, optional
Cover the lentils with water and cook for 10-12 minutes over moderate heat. While cooking, sauté the vegetables. (All the vegetables can be chopped in a food processor with a steel blade using the pulse button). When the lentils are tender, drain them. Purée half the lentils and set aside. Mix the other half of the lentils into the vegetables and add some of the breadcrumbs and mix until you get a homogenous mixture. It may be necessary to add more breadcrumbs to achieve this. Shape the mixture into 4 patties and coat with breadcrumbs. Fry in olive oil, about 5 minutes per side, over moderate heat. Season with salt and pepper and serve at once.
Serving suggestion: Serve with oven-roasted potatoes with shallots and a simple salad.
