Print-and-Keep Lentil Walnut Burger Recipe – National Burger Day 2021

86 / 100

If you missed last year’s Black Bean Burger recipe, grab a copy here, or kick it up a notch for National Burger Day 2021 with our Lentil Walnut Burger recipe.

You can change the taste and make your Lentil Walnut Burger patties taste individually different by adding:

  • cumin
  • coriander
  • garam masala
  • chipotle
  • oregano
  • berbere
  • or chili powder

For a more meaty and sausage-y kind of flavour, add coarsely-ground fennel seeds. 

Lentil Walnut Burger patties taste great with homemade mayonnaise! For an extra protein boost, try Correxiko’s Delicious Collagen-Infused Eggless Mayo recipe now.

Of course, a more traditional sauce such as

  • ranch
  • avocado
  • jalapeno
  • ketchup
  • bbq
  • mustard
  • or cheese

will also do quite well and add flavour to your burger. Caramelized onions with sweet garlic and pickles can also create a taste sensation when combined with Correxiko’s Eggless Mayonnaise.

Instructions and Cooking Methods

  1. To bake, preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or baking paper.
  3. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and sauté the onion, garlic, ginger, and spices until softened and slightly browned. Add mushrooms and continue to brown.
  4. Add rice and half the cooked lentils and pulse in a blender until well combined.
  5. Transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the lentils, the ketchup, 1 tablespoon of oil, and the flax seed meal, and mix together until everything is evenly combined.
  6. Taste and adjust salt, spices, and any herbs used, if needed.
  7. Add breadcrumbs or flour and mix well. Let chill for 10 minutes.
  8. Test the wetness of the chilled mixture and add more flour or breadcrumbs, if needed.
  9. Add more flax seed meal if too crumbly to make patties.
  10. Shape into 4 large patties and pack tight.
  11. To grill, slide under the grill in your oven, and turn once in 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve after 30 minutes in total.
  12. To pan-fry, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  13. Top your burgers with Correxiko’s Eggless Mayonnaise or your favourite toppings, or keep in the refrigerator until needed (keeps +/- 30 hours).
  14. Serve on seeded or plain buns.
