Adventures in Cooking: Curried Lentil Burgers; vegan

Posted by on July 8, 2013 at 5:24 am.

A few days ago, I made curried lentil burgers (vegan.) I’d been craving a good veggie burger for a while and finally got around to making my own. I don’t purchase frozen veggie burgers. Personally, I don’t think they taste that great. Besides, I can make a much better veggie burger.

After I gathered all the ingredients needed, I mixed everything together.

I formed the ingredients into burger sized patties. Then, I put the patties on a tray and stuck them in the oven.

When making veggie burgers, I tend to bake them into the oven instead of cooking them in the skillet. I’ve found the end results is a much firmer “veggy burger.”

Firm veggie burgers. I mainly bake veggie burgers in the oven. They don’t fall apart.

 

At the halfway mark I flipped the burgers.

My curried lentil burgers were an overwhelming success!  I didn’t make more ranch fries to accompany this meal. In hindsight, perhaps I should have made pakoras (Indian spiced vegetable fritters.) Instead of frying them, I would have made a baked version.

But back to the curried lentil burgers. They were moist, high on flavor and low on calories. Which is how it should be. I must say, that these burgers were even popular with those who weren’t vegetarian/vegan; the burgers didn’t last long.
