These vegan lentil burgers were highly requested. If you watch our vlog channel, you know my husband, Eddie, loves these! He’s always asking me to make him another batch.
I always just eyeballed this recipe and it came out great each time. Sometimes I switch it up and add different things, like different spices, ketchup, bbq sauce, sriracha sauce. etc.
Feel free to play around with the spices, sauces, etc. Also, if you like some spice, add some red chili flakes, cayenne, or black pepper.
