Lentils have the highest amount of protein per weight of any other plant source and also provide slow burning carbohydrates to keep you feeling fuller for longer. Their iron content provides energy and their fibre helps maintain a happy digestive system.They are also easily adaptable and can be used in a range of dishes from soups, to stews to salads and as we did in this recipe, burgers.
These vegetarian lentil butternut burgers are made with lentils, oats, parsley and roasted peanuts. They’re baked, not fried and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, roasted butternut slices and a creamy peanut sauce. Serve them on a roll or wrapped inside lettuce.
