Vegan Lentil Burgers

These vegan lentil burgers are virtually fat free and packed full of protein! If you fancy a burger but don’t like meat substitutes lentils are a great option. They are a good source of fibre, potassium, calcium, zinc, vitamin k, protein, folate, iron – powerful little things!

Tinned lentils also work really well. It will mean you can whip up these burgers in no time. I always keep some in my cupboard and we should be eating more in our diets with all their benefits!

I served them in a burger bun with pickles, facon (see my blog post: Rice Paper Bacon) and ketchup – but serve with your favourite toppings. Go for it!
