How to make it

  • This takes about 40 minutes to prepare: you can do "part 1" while
  • "part 2" is cooking, plus about 1 hour to chill, then 15 minutes to
  • cook.
  • Makes between 4 to 6 servings, depending on the size of patties you
  • make and the hunger of participants.
  • Note: uncooked burgers may be individually wrapped and frozen.
  • Part 1: Bring lentils and water to a boil in saucepan. Lower the
  • heat, and simmer, partly-covered, 30 minutes, or until lentils are
  • soft, and liquid is gone. Place in large-ish bowl. Add vinegar, and
  • mash.
  • Part 2: Saute remaining ingredients, except for wheat germ, together
  • over medium-low heat 10 to 15 minutes, or until all is tender. Add to
  • the mashed lentils, and mix well. Add wheat germ and mix again.
  • Chill for about 1 hour.
  • The Burgers:
  • 1. Make 4-inch patties from chilled burger-mixture. For freezing,
  • make patties, place wax paper between each patty and stack; wrap well
  • and freeze (or wrap individually).
  • 2. Fry burgers in butter until brown, *or* broil about 8 minutes on
  • each side. Try putting sesame seeds in pan to keep burgers from
  • sticking to pan, if it is a problem.
  • 3. Serve either as patties, or as burgers in a whole-wheat bun. Good
  • with cheese melted on top, basil sprinkled on each burger is tasty
  • also.
  • Note: you can also form mixture into balls and brown well then add in any recipe you would use meatballs in.
