I'm back! Finally! A brand new recipe and video coming at ya from my brand new kitchen! It was so much fun to film this recipe on my new "set". My beautiful kithcen was built and customized for me by my amazing fiance and soon-to-be brother in law. They poured their hearts - and all their spare time - into building this kitchen exactly how I imagined it. After countless hours spent looking at tile, sinks, faucets, and deliberating over backsplash and appliances, Mitch and I are finally able to relax and enjoy it and make ourselves at home. There's no better feeling! Once that final nail was hammered and the last piece of backsplash had set, I knew it was time to come up with a great recipe for you. Here we go - Mushroom Flax Lentil Burgers!
I've been eating a lot of vegetarian meals lately, and I always feel amazing afterwards. Not overly full, just satisfied, light and ready to tackle the rest of the day. I know people sometimes worry that a meatless meal won't fill them up, but these burgers are super hearty and tasty - you won't miss the meat at all! This recipe is filled with tons of protein, fiber, and healthy omega-3s. You can pile your burger with your favorite toppings, cheese, and condiments and eat it on a toasted bun, or you can ditch the extra carbs and serve it on top of a salad. I went bun-less and ate mine with dijon mustard, cherry tomatoes, avocado, and arugula, and it was just perfection.
Here's everything you need to know to make your new favorite Meatless Monday dinner:
Recipe inspired by Cooking Light
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup chopped white onion
2 garlic cloves - minced (or 2 frozen Dorot Garlic Cubes)
1 1/2 cups pre-cooked lentils (I used the Trader Joe's Steamed Lentils)
1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
4 whole wheat crackers (I used Ak-Mak)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp freshly cracked pepper
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
Any toppings you like - goat cheese, parmesan, dijon mustard, arugula, avocado, tomatoes, onions . . .
Serves 3 - 4.
What do you think? Are you ready to try out some lentil burgers? Mitch and I couldn't get enough of this recipe - it's definitely going to be on repeat in our new kitchen!
