Servings 4


  • cups cooked Farmer's Select green lentils
  • ½ cup  finely grated carrots
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
  • ¾ tsp smoked paprika
  • tsp.  ground cumin
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Toasted Buns


  • Place 1 cup of the lentils in a large bowl and thoroughly mash. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup whole lentils. Squeeze carrots with a paper towel to remove excess moisture, and stir into lentil mixture. Add next 8 burger ingredients (tomato paste through black pepper); mix well until cohesive. Divide and shape lentil mixture into 4 patties. (*Note: if mixture is too wet, sprinkle in 1 to 2 Tbsp. flour of choice)
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook burger patties until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  • Place one lentil burger on each of 4 buns. Top lentil patties with slaw of choice.
