Ingredients
Directions
1. Cut up 2 cups of vegetables and place them in your food processor. Pulse until pieces are smaller than a slaw recipe.
2. Add tahini, garlic cloves, a 1/2 inch piece of ginger root and black pepper. Keep pulsating until the texture is smooth.
3. Measure 1/2 cup red lentils and add to 1 1/4 cup water. Allow to cook for about 20 minutes.
4. Add some green chilies for a bite. Add a cup of cooked frozen peas for a higher protein content.
5. Use two tablespoons to spoon small rounds on to a prepared cookie sheet (use parchment paper to lower the fat content).
6. Treat yourself to a bit of yogurt or treat it as you would a regular burger.
