Sweet Potato Lentil Burgers

Do these look amazing or what?  My vegan lentil burgers are super yummy, insanely simple and good for you!  And they don’t taste like dirt.  None of my cooking tastes like dirt.  People ask me that all the time.  I don’t get it.  FYI:  dirt will taste like dirt and if you are at the beach and drop your food in the sand . . . it will taste like sand.

The Recipe

Ingredients:

  • lentils
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • onions
  • peppers
  • breadcrumbs
  • limes
  • lime zest
  • Thai Sweet Red Chili Sauce
  • vegetable broth

 

Directions:

  1. Peel, cube and roast the sweet potatoes at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.
  2. Make the lentils.  Add 1 cup lentils and 2 cups water or veg broth.  Bring to a boil, turn the heat down to a simmer for 20ish minutes until they are cooked firm.  In this recipe if you cook them a tad too much and they are mushy, it won’t matter.
  3. In a skillet type of pan cook the onions, peppers several minutes on a medium heat.  The idea is to wake up the flavor but not burn them.   Add lime juice and lime zest to the pan.
  4. I added Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for some sweet heat.
  5. Let this mixture cool.  Add enough breadcrumbs bind the lentil mix–you should be able to form them into patties like hamburgers.
