Molly’s Homemade Lentil Burgers


1 cup dry lentils
2 cups water
1 cup breadcrumbs
2/3 cup wheat germ
1 small onion diced
1 Tbsp ground coriander
1 Tbsp olive oil

Rinse lentils, put in a small saucepan and cover with the 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil let simmer for 20-30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain remaining water and place lentils in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients (except olive oil). Using your hands mash the ingredients until thoroughly mixed (have fun with it!). Form patties and cook in olive oil in a skillet over low heat until brown on both sides.

Serve on buns with red onion, tomato or whatever combination of condiments you enjoy.

Makes five patties. Lentil burger patties also freeze well.
