Meatless Monday Lentil Burgers
Adapted from Eat Happy by Anna Vocino
1 cup green lentils
4 cups water
1 small sweet onion, diced
1 cup flour or almond flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten, divided
2 Tbsp chopped chives, fresh or dried
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 oversized lettuce leaves
Boil the lentils in the water. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Drain, set aside.
In a mixer, add half the lentils, onion, half the flour, one beaten egg, and chives. Mix until it is paste consistency. Put this mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add in the remaining lentils, flour and second egg. Mix well.
Heat olive oil in a skillet. Shape the lentil mixture into patties and gently place in heated pan (carefully or they will fall apart!).
Cook until crispy and brown about 3-5 min each side.
Serve over the lettuce leaf. Garnish with your favorite burger toppings.
