Mushroom-Lentil Burgers

3 years ago

You simply can't beat a good burger, loaded down with your favorite toppings, and sandwiched between a bun. I'm not a vegetarian but when it comes to burgers if I have a choice between a meat patty or a veggie filled one, nine times out of ten I am going for the veggie.  I want my veggie burgers to have taste, substance and texture and this patty delivers on all accounts.

This homemade veggie burger is made with high-quality ingredients, which isn't always the case with the store-bought versions. The high-protein lentils and flavorful and "meaty" mushrooms, make them both hearty and satisfying.
