Homemade Lentil Burger
Since it seemed to bind together nicely, I pattied some of it up and pan fried the result in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil.
After it was finished, I served it with some knock-off American-made Parmesan cheese (much too soft and mild for pasta, but pretty good on a sandwich or as a snack) and some Sweet Baby Ray's Raspberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce.
Overall, I wasn't a big fan. The lentils still tasted great, but they needed something more to bind them. Next time I'll likely add some egg white or mush them a bit to break the beans open. It also could have used a less-creamy cheese (I was out of everything else). As for the sauce, it just plain sucked. It was waaay too sweet and not spicy at all. Sweet Baby Ray's Raspberry Chipotle sauce is to serious bbq fans as Michelob Ultra is to Trappist monks.
