These burgers have been my late lunch today and they pack a powerful punch, high in antioxidants and full of protein and very delicious :)
I experiemented with baking some, and frying some in golden ghee. The verdict use ghee and gently fry very yummy!
1 can brown lentils
2 tablespoons goji berries
1 tablespoon black chia seeds
2 tablespoons spelt flour (or brown rice flour to help bind)
1/8 bunch parsley, chopped small
200g pumpkin, peeled and steamed for ten minutes
1 carrot, peeled and chopped steamed for ten minutes
organic ghee for frying
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon pink rock salt
Mix all spices in a mortar and pestle and combine in a large bowl with other ingredients mix well and roll into burger size patties. If cooking in oven 20 minutes is sufficient.
