Funny Story about the recipe : My whole family loves these! This recipe makes about 12 burgers (freeze some!). Feel free to add more spices or jalapeno peppers to jazz them up!

  • Reduce heat, cover, and cook until all the water is absorbed – approx 40 min.
  • Add additional water if needed, it should be thick.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool.
  • Add lentils & rice to a food processor. Add egg, breadcrumbs, basil, cheese & garlic. Process until well combined & the texture of ground beef.
