1/2 cup dried green lentils
1 cup garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
6 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms (I used 1/2 cup of zucchini instead and a handful of spinach)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
5 tsp. Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. cumin
1 cup cooked brown rice
Note: I ground my own flaxseed from whole flaxseed
Preheat oven to 375
Cook green lentils and brown rice according to package directions.
In the meantime, add the garbanzo beans, garlic, mushrooms, and olive oil to a food processor and process for 30 seconds until somewhat formed. Remove the mixture and put in a large bowl.
Add cooked and drained lentils, cooked brown rice and remaining ingredients to the bowl. Mix and mash until contents are evenly spread out.
Form the mixture into 6 patties
Kinda look like funky oatmeal choc chip cookies LOL
Place on a greased or sprayed cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
I topped mine with avocado and ate it with my salad. I made my husband the same but on top of a piece of a garlic pita, and yes he ate it!! LOL
There are a number of things you could top it with, be creative!
Peace and Love,
