Today I’m so excited to share a recipe for a delicious sprouted green lentil burger from my brand new ebook Gluten-Free Vegetarian! This veggie burger is a great easy lunch to make. I’ll sometimes make a big batch and refrigerate or freeze some of the patties to have for easily accessible, healthy lunches during the week.
I explain in my ebook Gluten-Free Vegetarian why it’s important to sprout grains and legumes like lentils:
Sprouting is a process that germinates grains, seeds or legumes which in turn makes them more easily digested and produces additional vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin B and Carotene. Another benefit to sprouting and soaking is the resulting decrease in phytic acid. Phytic acid is an enzyme inhibitor, which means that it blocks the absorption of vitamins and minerals and can also cause poor digestion and an unhealthy gut. This may explain why many people feel bloated, gassy or intolerant of beans and grains.”

Sprouted Green Lentil Burger (vegan, grain-free) from Gluten-Free Vegetarian:
- Make sure you sprout the lentils 3 days prior as it takes lentils about 3 days to sprout.
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor. This will chop up the crunchy sprouted lentils and mix all the ingredients together.
- Heat about 1-2 tbsp ghee, butter or oil in a skillet. Form about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the mixture into balls, then flatten into a burger shape. These burger should be a little thinner than regular burgers.
- Cook for several minutes on each side. Each side should be golden brown. Don’t forget to check out my ebook Gluten-Free Vegetarian! It contains this recipe and many other new recipes!
