94. cashew and red lentil burgers

Another recipe from Color me vegan. These looked easy, and I had all the ingredients on hand. And nothing beats a homeade veggie burger!
I threw in about 1/2 a cup of quinoa with the lentils, for added nutrition.

These were delicious! The sweetness of the curry compliments everything so well. I will be making these again, for sure! Actually thinking of making a bunch and freezing them to have on hand.

2 cups water
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup red lentils
quiona (optional)
1/2 tspn salt
1 cup raw cashews
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T curry powder
1 cup panko bread crumbs

Combine water, carrots, lentils and salt to a saucepan. Heres where i threw in a handful or so of quinoa as well. Bring a to a boil. Redcue the heat to low and cover and simmer until lentils are tender, 12-14 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Toast cashews. heat 1 T oil and saute oinons until soft, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and curry powder and cook, for one minute.

I put the cashews in my vitamix and got them all ground up. Then I added the lentil and onion mixture, along with the breadcrumbs and mixed it up until smooth.

Form into patties and cook on oiled grill pan.
