I like the taste of these, I added a little lemon zest. But they didn't stick together and the clean up was more than I like to do.
Lentil & Almond Burgers
These vegetarian burgers are just the thing for a summery picnic, on buns or on their own with sliced tomatoes and relish. Or try them with roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli. Use a wide spatula to flip the delicate patties.

Best flavor/texture of any veggie burger I've made. If you're having the problem of the burgers not holding together when you cook them, YOU MUST MAKE SURE YOU'VE CHILLED THE INGREDIENTS FIRST. This is a tip I learned from an Israeli friend who taught me how to make falafel. Chilling the mix in the fridge is an essential step to bind ingredients together. I've made these many times and never had a problem. I always make extras and freeze them in a Ziploc bag. That's my kind of fast food.
The cooking time for the brown and green lentils is difference in the recipe and the note. I have not tried it yet but would like to. I have some brown lentils and want to try the green ones in my quest for different dishes!
I read the reviews about the patties not holding together before I prepared them. By scooping the mixture into a 1/3 cup measure, it was easy to flatten them gently into a patty that held together. I will definitely make these again!
These were horrible. The patties didn't stay together at all and we felt like we were chewing on sand. The mixture was also flavorless. Will never make again.
