Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pulse lentils in a food processor until coarsely ground; transfer to a large mixing bowl.

  • Mix onion, egg, bell pepper, and bread crumbs with the lentils; add mozzarella cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper to the lentils and mix.

  • Divide the mixture into four equally sized portions, roll into balls, and flatten into patties.

  • Spread cornmeal into a wide, shallow bowl. Dredge patties in cornmeal to coat.

  • Heat olive oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties in skillet until browned, about 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe was adapted from Butter Bean Burgers, as submitted by Allrecipes user SILVERWOLF.

You may also deep-fry them in 1/4 cup of oil, however I prefer them crispier.

You can mash the lentils by hand rather than use a food processor, just be careful to maintain a coarse texture.
