Easy lentil veggie burger adapted from SILVERWOLF’s ‘Butter Bean Burgers.’ Additional vegetables may be added, as well as extra spices to enhance the flavor. You should also use whatever cheese you like.
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.
