Lentil Burgers

2 cups dried red lentils
1 cup bread crumbs, preferably whole wheat
1 lg onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper

Wash lentils thoroughly and pick out any sticks and stones and grit
which might get in them. In a large pot, bring the water to a
rolling boil. Add lentils and cook for 20-25 minutes until the
lentils start to puree. Drain and let cool. It is not necessary
to let them get cold.

Transfer the cooked lentils to a large mixing bowl. Add bread
crumbs, garlic and onion and mix thoroughly. Season well.

You then can experiment with herbs and spices. I usually add loads
of cajun spice, with healthy measures of parsley, basil and marjoram.
You could try thyme or sage. It is your choice.

If the mixture does not hold together well enough, add more bread
crumbs. Form into patties and then cook as you would a regular
hamburger in a little oil. Or barbecue. If they are really dry,
then they hold together well enough to barbecue.
