Black Beluga Lentil Burgers with Salad πŸ₯—

Hi everyone,

In the poll zube-UK said about making burgers with mung beans onions and peppers so I knew what I was going to cook but I used some black beluga lentils and blended them with some diced onion and baby plum tomatoes thickened with chick pea flour as it's a really good binder. I then rolled them into rounds and flattened them on a floured board with more chick pea flour.

I had them with lightly cooked mushrooms salad and new potatoes. You can see by the colour the outside of the burgers has gone how good chick pea flour is as an egg replacer, so this is plant based gluten free and wholesome.

It's been a lovely sunny day here today. 😊

Thanks Debs they're ever so easy as I used a tin of organic beluga lentils so it was biff bash bosh and they were in the pan...😊

Chick pea flour, what a brilliant idea thank you, I will certainly use that next time. I've never tried black beluga lentils but will try them when I can find them here, and would these type burgers have a good flavour made with the black chick peas that you mentioned as croutons? I find a bit of mace or nutmeg, chili, garlic and tomato purΓ©e makes all the difference too.

Hi zube-UK thank you and I'm glad you like adaption as they were so easy to make I season with pepper herbs spices like ginger and I added a little dried chilli. I'm sure that any chick pea would make a great burger.

I'll try some tomato puree and nutmeg so thanks for that tip. 😊
