Vegetarian Lentil Burgers

Ingredients
3 cups cooked lentils
4 large eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 onion, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1-2 cups Japanese Panko bread crumbs
black pepper to taste

Directions
Saute chopped onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly caramelized. Add sauteed onions, garlic, cooked lentils into the food processor and pulse until the consistency of hummus. Pour the lentil mixture into a large bowl and then add the eggs and bread crumbs. Let mixture sit 5 minutes to thicken. You want your mixture to be firm enough to be able to form 12-14 patties (adding more or less bread crumbs depending on your mixture’s moisture level). Next form your patties and cook in a prepared skillet (greased with olive oil) on medium heat. Cook on each side about 5 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm on fresh rolls with your favorite condiments (I love avocado, lettuce, tomato and spicy mustard).
