2 Ingredient Vegan Barbecue Lentil Burger
2 Ingredient Vegan Barbecue Lentil Burger. A super easy way to enjoy a meat-free, protein-packed burger that is full of flavor! Made with fiber rich lentils and a handful of barbecue chips these burgers are a quick dish for any night of the week!
It’s #meatless Monday! Who else enjoys a good veggie dish now and again? We all know I am a die hard meat and seafood lover! But every once in awhile I like to get crazy and enjoy a good vegan recipe! Especially when they are made with my favorite lentils! Thinking of it, I really should start pairing more of my meat/seafood combos with my lentils! I mean, this dish was amazing!
But, one of my favorite reasons to love this dish (besides all of the fiber and protein!) is that it is made with only two ingredients! Two! Did you ever think that you could whip up a 2 Ingredient Vegan Barbecue Lentil Burger? And the cost? Less than $1 a burger! How could you resist making this protein packed, fiber rich, cost effective and flavorful recipe??
- 1 package steam fresh lentils, rinsed
- 1 cup Beanfields Snacks
- Add chips to a food processor and pulse until crumbs are formed
- Add in lentils
- Process until combined
- Remove and shape into burgers
- From here you can individually wrap and freeze the burgers for later use, eat raw, cook in a skillet over medium heat with a bit of oil or even grill!
- Serve as desired
