Walnuts and fresh marjoram accent these vegan lentil burgers. Substitute oregano for marjoram if you like. Serve with a smear of whole-grain mustard and roasted sweet potato wedges.

Love these hearty 'meaty' burgers

Love this recipe, have made it no less than ten times for my family, adding differing spices and condiments as we go :) So easy to switch up without issues. Quite a few comments about them falling apart, just add a bit more moisture, I add the whole can of lentils not just 1.5 cups, and a bit more garlic and walnuts. Works like a charm!! yummmmmm


Used pecans and oregano. Added an egg.

Excellent flavor
Delicious but crumbly

These have a fantastic flavor, but I cannot figure out how to get them to not fall apart. The middle is mushy but the outside is crispy. I will try these on a george foreman next time. Maybe that will help.

I substituted shredded carrots for the walnuts and added a dash of hickory smoke salt. Very good with sweet potato fries.

Carrots contain water, try

Carrots contain water, try adding your favorite cheese. As for falling apart adding an egg or 2 will hold them together.

Will use an egg white to see

Will use an egg white to see if they stay together after reading this comment OR flax seed meal and water as a binder.

Tasty... but

I'd love to know how to keep these from falling apart. Made the recipe as directed but I had a mess when I was done. Tasty though....

Good nutrition, good taste
