Curried Cashew Burgers

Summer 2002, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (110 votes)

If you're looking for a veggie burger with a great "meaty" feel, these are the ones to try. The secret is toasted cashews, which give them amazing flavor as well as texture. The red lentils cook surprisingly fast, keeping the active time brief.



READER'S COMMENT:
"We have no need to buy any more of those store bought vegetarian burgers after trying these! Absolutely fabulous! Next time we make them we're going to add black beans. Other than that - no changes. "

great flavor

My husband and I love these burgers so I make them often. We normally eat a lot of Indian food and appreciate flavorful foods so these do the trick. I tweaked the recipe a bit- I add 1/4 teaspoon tumeric to the lentils when cooking and a tomato (sort of like making dal). I also add curry leaves to the onions/garlic/curry powder when frying. When I make the raita I only use yogurt, lime juice and crushed garlic. These patties also go very nice with fresh hummus instead of raita.

easy to make, nutritious, vegan

Part of a diet meal plan, but 6 servings!!!!!

Got to love that a recipe designed for a diet meal plan is completely impractical unless you have a spouse and several children. How are you supposed to eat healthy and eat less, this is the case in multiple websites and recipes but this is when I needed to rant. You can't even scale it down, unless you suggest prepping a meal with 1/6th of a clove of garlic or having a burger everyday for 6 days meaning the rest of the meal plan is pointless.

Fantastic

This is a delicious recipe - fantastic flavor. I did feel it had a bit more of a consistency of a falafel than a burger, but stuffed in a pita with mixed greens and the raita that is suggested in the recipe, it doesn't matter. It tastes delicious. And even my meat-only eating husband conceded that these were delicious.

Relatively easy to make, delicious tasting, healthy

Flavorful Burger

These were surprisingly quite tasty. I prefer them without the pita. Next time I will make them into balls and put in the pita. They pack a lot of flavor.

Flavorful, easy to make can make ahead and cook later
