Lentil carrot celery burgers
What you need:
• 200g dried brown lentils
• 1 vegetable stock
• 1 teaspoon oil
• 1 onion, chopped
• 2 stalks celery, chopped tiny
• 3 big carrots, grated
• 3 garlics, grated
• 2 tablespoons tomato paste or ketchup
• 100g oats, or more depending of your burger mixture, blended in the blender for a flour
• 2 teaspoons or more dried parsley
• 2 teaspoons or more dried thyme
• 2 tablespoons soy sauce
• Salt and pepper
How to make it:
1. Cook your lentils in vegetable stock and pepper till they are tender. Put aside.
2. Heat up oil in a pot, add onion and cook till tender. (Add a splash of water to prevent the onion from burning if you need to). Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.
3. Add tomato paste or ketchup, mix it well and cook for another 1 minute.
4. Add celery and carrots, mix it well, add soy sauce, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper and combine well.
5. Cook covered till your vegetables are tender.
6. When ready combine vegetable mixture with cooked lentils, mix it well. Let it cool down little.
7. Put it into the food processor and pulse it for a few times to have a kind of smooth rough texture.
8. Put the mixture into the bowl, add oat flour and mix it well.
9. Taste it and add more seasoning if needed.
10. Heat up your oven.
11. Lightly oil your baking tray and with wet hands make your burgers the size you prefer.
12. Bake them in the oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes or depending of your oven. Check it regularly.
13. Take your burgers out of the oven. They will feel crispy from outside and soft from inside.
14. Let them cook down little bit around 5 minutes and then turn them to the other side. So this way they will get crispy on both side.
This recipe makes around 12 – 15 burgers depends on the size.
Buy your beans & legumes in a bulk shop (if available) or in the biggest possible packaging in order to reduce your waste. I always cook my beans/chickpeas in advance and I store them portioned in the freezer.
When you make it take a picture and post it in our community chat. Would love to see it.
I like to eat them with mash potatoes or with my soups or as a snack.

Hm…last time I didn’t have a main course ready so I had eaten these burgers with my Beetroot carrot ginger soup. I have to say it was actually lovely combination
