Despite psychological protests, these are a favourite. They can be eaten as the title suggests, in a burger, or as an entree on top of a bed of fancy lettuce with a dollop of chutney or chilli sauce on top, or as the main dish with lots of vegetables on the side. They would even make good “meatballs” in a spaghetti sauce. The jury is out on whether they would work in a curry sauce. But however you eat them, they are cheap and a fantastic way to use up the copious quantities of bran we end up with when sifting our flour.

1 onion, finely chopped
1t olive oil
   Saute until tender

1T green curry paste
   Add and saute 1 minute

3C brown lentils, cooked and mashed
1 1/2C bran
1C fresh breadcrumbs
1/2C fresh coriander
2 eggs, lightly beaten
   Add and mix well
   Form into patties (~1/3C each) (or meatballs)

Extra olive oil and butter
   Fry until golden brown on both sides
