Posted by Joe Wicks in Recipes

Here's one for the veggies. Hold tight for this lentil burger with portobello mushrooms. It's well nawwwty. Give it a try and let me know what you think ...


What you'll need:


60g dried red lentils

200ml veg stock

5g coconut oil

80g onion

1 garlic clove

60g carrot

1 teaspoon of cumin

Small handful of parsley

1 egg

15g bread crumbs

130g spinach

40g mozzarella

40g tomato

2 portobello mushrooms

135g salad greens 



Preheat oven to 200°c

For burger: Cook the lentils in the vegetable stock for 15-20 mins until just turning soft. Drain and allow to cool.

Meanwhile in a frying pan cook the diced onion, garlic, cumin and grated carrot for 3-4 mins in half the coconut oil, until soft. Combine this mix with the cooked lentils, egg, parsley and breadcrumbs.

Shape into two burgers and gently fry in coconut oil until golden brown, and then finish in the oven for 5-6 mins. 

For garnish: Cook the portobello mushrooms in the oven for 4-5 mins until just turning soft. Wilt the spinach down and squeeze out any excess water. Slice the tomato nice and thin.

To serve: Use the Portobello mushroom as the bun and layer the rest of the ingredients up to create your burger. Melt the mozzarella in the oven on top of the lentil burger before stacking. Serve with salad greens.
