Lentil Burgers

Lentils are a favored ingredient for meatless burgers. The crumbled rice cakes added here give this traditional recipe a new twist.

2 cups cooked lentils

1 cup finely chopped onion

1 cup finely grated carrot

1 cup finely chopped celery

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 rice cakes, crumbled (about 2 cups)
1/4 cup tomato paste

2 - 3 tablespoons Bragg's Liquid Aminos

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Mix all the ingredients together with a spoon or by hand, partially mashing together, and form into burgers. Arrange the burgers on an oiled baking sheet, and bake for about 25 minutes on each side until browned. They should hold together when gently turned. Let cool a few minutes before removing from the baking sheet. Serve in a bun or as a main dish with gravy.

*Bragg's Liquid Aminos = non-fermented soy sauce; gluten-free. May use soy sauce or tamari sauce.
