Vegan Lentil Burgers Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 30 mins
1 cup red lentils, dry
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup carrot, peeled and grated
2 tsp mustard, ensure vegan and gluten-free
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried basil
2 tbsp tamari
1First, preheat the oven t0 180 degrees C/350 F. Meanwhile, cook the lentils according to packaging instructions until softened, but not mushy - this usually takes around 7-8 minutes. Drain and rinse when done.
2Add the walnuts and lentils to a blender or food processor. Pulse until a walnut 'paste' forms.
3Transfer the walnut and lentil mixture to a large mixing bowl together with the oat flour, carrot, mustard, paprika, cumin, dried basil and tamari. Stir together really well, using your hands if necessary to form a 'dough'.
4Using around 1/3-1/2 cup dough per burger, shape the dough into patties and lay them out on a sheet of baking paper over a baking tray.
5Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and crispy on the outside.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
