Red Lentil and Quinoa Veggie Burger


2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup cooked red lentils
2 cups cooked red quinoa (black or white work too)
gluten free bread crumbs or organic corn meal
1 egg, beaten
coconut oil, ghee, or butter, for cooking


Combine garlic, pumpkin seeds, cilantro, onion and lentils in a food processor and pulse until they come together in a think puree.
Transfer this mixture to a large bowl and fold in quinoa, egg and breadcrumbs/cornmeal as needed to hold the mixture together.
Form 4-6 patties depending on the size you want and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove patties from refrigerator.
Heat a skillet over medium heat.
Add a few tablespoons of oil to the skillet and cook patties, turning over after about 6 minutes.
Cook on the other side for another 6 minutes or until heated through.

Looks delish, and easy too. Can't wait to try it out. I already know I will like. I had to laugh as this reminded me of my sisters chocolate mousse she attempted when we were young. It called for 1 cup of coffee, and she put one cup of coffee in it, but not brewed LOL it was a gritty mess. I have no idea why this just came to mind, maybe as you stated cooked lentils, quinoa etc... I think otherwise it would be a bit dusty. Thanks for bringing back a very funny memory she will never be able to run from..I must call her.
