Lentil Burger



  • 2 cups du Puy lentils
  • 3 large onions, finely chopped
  • 3 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp herbes de Provence
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, for frying


Cook lentils until tender in boiling salted water, about 20 minutes.

Sauté the onions in the olive oil on medium heat until lightly brown, add the garlic, spices and herbs and sauté for 3 more minutes.

Process the lentils in a food processor until a medium meal is obtained.

Add the lentils to the onions and cook for 3 or 4 minutes on medium heat.

Transfer the lentil mix to a bowl and add the cornstarch. Mix thoroughly. The mix will get slightly sticky.

Shape into patties (12 to 16 depending on size).

Fry the patties with olive oil in a cast iron pan as needed or freeze for future use.
