Lentil and Beef Patties – LEAH ITSINES

Lentil and Beef Patties

Lentils give a great texture to a patty - and I absolutely love them! They're great for a plant based source of protein and a great staple to have In your pantry at all times. Once these patties are made,  layer it on a burger bun and top with your favourites! 

Makes: 6 patties 
Ingredients: 
600g beef mince 
3 mushrooms, finely grated 
1 400g can of brown lentils, drained and rinsed 
1 small brown onion, diced or grated
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp soy sauce 

1 egg
2 tbsp parsley, chopped 
Salt and pepper, to taste 

Olive oil, for cooking 

Directions: 

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add mince, mushrooms, drained lentils, brown onion, breadcrumbs, soy sauce, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well. 
  2. Once mixed, shape into small burger patties. If these are a little sticky or having trouble staying together, add a little breadcrumb until the mixture is firm.
  3. In a deep non-stick pan, heat a splash of olive oil over medium high heat. Add patties into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. 
  4. Once cooked - build your burger! Or eat with a side salad.
