Best Blog Tips

These are scrumptious, the texture is very good and they are very nutritious!
The surprising thing is that they do not taste like lentils at all, yet the flavor is superb!

1 ½ cups lentils cooked
½ cup oatmeal
½ cup millet, cooked to the consistency of rice
½ cup wheat germ
¾ cup whole wheat bread crumbs (you can make your own by toasting your bread and pulverizing it in the blender or food processor)
1/3 cup sliced almonds
½ cup all purpose flour
3 Tbsp. cornstarch (as a binder)
1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, washed and sliced
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1/3 cup sweet peppers, seeded and chopped
½ cup parsley, chopped
½ cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste

In a blender with barely enough to water to process, put the tomato, celery, onion, carrot, pepper and parsley, process till smooth. Scrape into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well till your have a soft dough. Form the burgers with your hands
And cook them on a skillet barely “painted” with olive oil until golden brown on both sides. Serve them topped with your favorite sauce.

Serves 3, depending on the size you make them, there could be more servings!
