Tightwad Lentil Burgers

Submitted by Debbie

Here's an old recipe from the Tightwad Gazette:

2 c. lentil-bulgur mixture (equal parts)
2 c. bread crumbs
1 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped green pepper
4 T. mixed Italian herbs
4 cloves garlic (or 4 t. powdered garlic)
2 T. soy flour mixed with 2 T. water
1/2 c. liquid (original called for milk, you can use plain water, soy or rice milk, or vegetable stock)

Mix the first six ingredients. Mix in soy flour/water mixture. Add liquid and mix well. Chill 1/2 hour. Make into patties and fry 10 minutes per side, or bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees, 10 minutes on each side.

1. The lentil-bulgur mixture is simply equal parts lentils and bulgur. I cook them together and usually make a large amount and freeze in 2 cup
2. You can, of course, use any seasonings you like.
3. The author doesn't say how big to make the burgers -- I like them kind of small and fairly thin and get about a dozen.
4. Green peppers can be pricey, if you've got them use them, if not try using some other vegetable.
