Curry Lentil Burgers


     I found myself wanting a wrap with a veggie burger the other night and ended up whipping up these burgers.  Simple and minimal are the key here and the base of the burger can be expanded to many other applications.  A lentil loaf or a garden vegetable lentil burger can just as easily be made with the addition of desired ingredients.  I really enjoyed these, made them around a half inch thick and when heated up they were nice and mushy inside...perfect for putting in a wrap.

1C      Lentils, cooked
1/4C  Quinoa, cooked
1oz    Cashews, raw
1oz    Almonds, raw
2T     Coconut aminos (can substitute reduced sodium tamari)
3T     Nutritional yeast
1T     Curry powder
2T     Red pepper flakes

Boil the first 4 ingredients until the lentils are cooked (appx 10min).  Drain and cool with cold water.  Add to a food processer with remaining ingredients and blend until you are able to form into patties.  You may need a tablespoon of water to make it stickier.  Form patties 1/2in thick and place on baking sheet.  Bake for 15-20 min at 350 degrees. ENJOY!
