Lentil Burgers recipe

These lentil burgers are packed full of protein. Grill them, BBQ them or bake them, then serve on wholemeal rolls with tomato ketchup, a slice of cheese and some salad for a delicious twist on the traditional beef burger.


  • 1 x 400g tin cooked lentils, drained
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 450g spicy salsa
  • 100g dried breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp. flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. chill powder

Method of Preparation:

  1. Grate the carrot and place into a bowl with a bit of water. Cover with cling, then microwave for 3-4 minutes until soft. Drain.

  2. Finely dice the onion and the pepper. Mash the carrot and lentils in a bowl, then stir in the onion, pepper, salsa, breadcrumbs, flour, salt, pepper and chilli powder. Form the mixture into 8 patties.

  3. Fry in oil until golden brown and firm on all sides, or BBQ or bake, whichever you prefer.

Add a freshly chopped chilli or some garlic to the burger mixture for extra flavour. Recipe serves 8.
