Lentil Burgers

The best burger so far! Great flavour and easy to make. I topped them with my own sprouted alfalfa sprouts and tomatoes from my mom's garden.  

1.5 cups cooked brown lentils
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 chopped jalapeno
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp. ground flax
2 tbsp. ketchup
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
salt to taste
1/2 - 3/4 cup ground oats

Cook lentils and quinoa. Heat oil in sauté pan over medium heat, add onions, garlic and jalapeno. Cook for 5 minutes or until soft.  Add celery, carrot, thyme and oregano and cook 5 minutes more or until veg is tender.
Combine cooked veg, lentils, quinoa, flax to bowl. Mash with a potato masher until well mashed.
Add ketchup, soy sauce and nutritional yeast. Mix well. Add oats. Mix. Taste and adjust salt. Mix should easily form patties. Add water if too dry, add more oats if too wet.
Fry in pan in oil for about 4-6 minutes or until golden brown.

2 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp. maple syrup
3 tbsp. ketchup
1 tsp sriracha

Mix all ingredients. Brush glaze on patties just before done or just before serving.
