My Fave Burger Patty

a delicious combo of toasted walnuts, lentils, brown rice and sautéed onions... yummmm!!

In this picture you can see my fave burger patty on a fresh baked sweet potato bun - you can find the recipe for this bun here --- (coming soon)

I've always loved burgers. As a kid my favourites were McDonalds (ewwww, so gross now) McDoubles or their Big Mac. I find that you can easily replicate your favourite fast food burger with these patties. All you have to do is switch up your toppings or bun! There is something so delicious about biting into a big juicy burger and these burgers are so good that even my kids love them! I always try to cook simple foods with simple ingredients that I know my kids will like and devour.

I like to mess around in the kitchen. I also always make a mess in the kitchen lol. I've played around with lots of different burger ingredients and I have some others that I also adore that I'll share at some point I'm sure. But as for this patty - it's super simple to make and all that you need equipment wise other then your stove is a food processor.

All you have to do is toast your walnuts, sauté the onions, cook the lentils and rice (or use a can of lentils!) and toss the rest of the ingredients in the food processor - process, mold into patties and fry them up! (or you can also bake them if preferred)

You can make these burger patties a few days ahead of time if you're getting ready to go to a BBQ. You can also freeze them for later use!


Ingredients -

1 cup cooked brown rice

2 TBSP olive oil

1 cup onion finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic minced

2 cups cooked brown lentils (or one can)

1 cup toasted walnuts

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp salt (I use pink Himalayan)

Oil for frying

Directions -

1. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté onions until translucent and add in garlic until lightly browned.

2. Add all of the ingredients to your food processor.

3. Process the mixture until it comes together smooth.

4. Remove from the processor and form into patties (I keep a bowl of water near by to keep my hands wet during the patty shaping process, it can be a bit sticky)

5. Heat oil in pan and fry up your patties! OR, place them on a lined baking sheet and bake them at 350 until they're crispy on the edges about 20 min.
