Walnut “Bean” Burgers
Although the recipe calls for lentils, try making them with yellow split peas as well, for a lovely and sturdy variation. The split peas will need a little more water (up to 2 1/2 cups) and more cooking time, but are a really nice option.
These are delicious fried or broiled, with or without some cheese melted on top. Try serving Lentil –Walnut Burgers with thick slices of sweet red bell pepper, or if you are making this in tomato season, with thick slices of very ripe tomato. Or you can just put these on a bun and serve with your favorite burger condiments.
The burgers can be made up to several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator until just before cooking. Uncooked burgers can be individually wrapped and frozen. Defrost before cooking.
