2 cups green or brown cooked lentils
1 cup cooked barley
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp tobasco
1/4 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat flour)
1/2 tsp salt
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried thyme
4 whole wheat hamburger buns
Lettuce, tomato and pickles, for garnish
In a food processor or powerful blender, blend cooked lentils, barley, onion, oil, tobasco, and garlic. Put the lentil mixture into a large bowl and add the salt, dill weed, oregano and thyme; gently combine ingredients until just incorporated.
Form patties and place on wax or parchment paper. Coat each side with a little flour before cooking.
Grill or sear the patties over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes per side or until browned and heated through, 6 minutes total.
Serve lentil burgers on whole wheat hamburger buns with lettuce, tomato and pickles or preferred garnishes.
