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.

Won't make again

These were a bit bland. We got out the jar of barbecue sauce!
Not planning to make them again -- too many other veg burgers that we love.

Neither good nor bad

Sorry just not doing it for my taste! Maybe if I added more flavor it would be better. My patties stuck together but was lacking in flavor. Otherwise ok.

Freeze?

I have not made these yet, but they look delicious! I'm the only vegetarian in my house, and don't want to waste ingredients making 5 patties. Could I make them, freeze what I don't eat, and just reheat them in the microwave later? Or should I freeze them uncooked, and cook them later? What would you suggest?!

I thought these turned out great--but with one huge catch. They didn't hold together. At all. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but that is my only complaint about them. Flavor-wise, they were great, and I would give this recipe 5 stars if my burgers had held together. I used dried thyme rather than fresh (two teaspoons rather than one) and added a couple teaspoons of all-purpose Greek seasoning that I had on hand. I also threw in a teaspoon or two of minced garlic, based on a previous comment. The mix turned out tasty, but we had to eat it with spoons!

Sounds good - I think I'll make it using the whole egg & the whites should help it hold together.
