Cheeky Lentil Burgers

Lenitls are usually given a bad rap, let me be a little rephrase. My husband (the mega meat eater) hates lentils, but I tricked him into tasting these and ended up loving them. For the non-meat eaters or those just trying to get some extra veg into your little ones bellies, you should really give this one a go.


Cheeky Lentil Burgers 


  • 1 cup Brown Lentils

  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs

  • 1 small Zucchini (grated)

  • 1 Carrot (grated)

  • 2 tbs Sour cream

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 tsp Mixed herbs

  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  1. Rinse the lentils in cold water then add to a pot with 2 cups of water and cook for about 15 minutes until the water is absorbed and the lentils are cooked. Add a little more water if needed.

  2. Transfer the lentils to a big bowl and add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all together.

  3. Heat up a pan with a little olive oil.

  4. Roll the lentil mixture into small balls and cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat, then flip and press them down to make flat disc shapes and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

  5. Serve on it's own with some tomato sauce or on a bun with some lettuce and cheese.

Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
