Hey, I have a quick question for all of you. I made a lentil burger recipe last night from How it All Vegan. The recipe was delicious, the only problem is I could not for the life of me get the patty to stick together. The only wet ingredients it called for was a tiny bit of olive oil MAYBE a tiny bit of water if I remember correctly. Does anybody have any advice on what I can add to help it stick -- my husband and I ended up eating it like sloppy joes.
This was the basic recipe as I remember it:
2 cups lentils 1/4 cup onion 3 tablesp olive oil 1 cup bread crumbs 3/4 cup wheat germ 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper
Mix all together, leaving 2 tablspoons of wheat germ out to coat the patty. Form the patties, lightly dust in remaining wheat germ and fry up in a pan of oil for about 5-10 minutes.
