Three Nut Burgers


Three Nut Burgers

1 1/2 cups cooked lentils (see below)

1 1/2 cups walnuts, ground

3/4 cup cashews, ground

3 tablesoons almond butter

1 cup dry breadcrumbs

1/2 tablespoon dried parsley

1 tablespoon olive oil

onion powder




Combine all ingredients. Salt, pepper, & onion powder is to taste. Shape into 8 patties.

Heat a small amount of olive oil in a skillet or griddle. (I like to use cast iron.) Brown about 5 minutes on each side. (I add a small amount of olive oil when I flip.)


For the lentils, I use the following recipe. It will make more than you need for the burgers. I usually use the remainder for tacos or as a dip with tortilla chips.

I did use canned lentils for the burgers once when I was in a rush. The burgers weren’t nearly as good.


1 1/2 cups dried lentils

5 cups water

1 bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon thyme

1/4 teaspoon celery salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Bring all ingredients to a boil. Simmer until water is almost completely absorbed.
