Curried Potato-Red Lentil Burger – OF & GF


Curry Red Lentil Burger - 6
This is a Red-Lentil version of my Curried Potato Lentil Burgers. As with the others, this little burger-patty is crisp on the outside and delightfully moist on the inside. Full of nutrient-rich lentils and soothingly smooth potatoes, this is one little burger that needs no bun. Lightly spiced with curry, cumin and coriander for a hint of the east, and “burgery” enough to think of the west.  

The texture is unique for a burger since it has a significant volume of flour in it. This is a recipe founded on error. I was cooking for my clients T and John and used the red lentils instead of the brown. It was so moist that I had to keep adding flour to it. They liked them so much, that I had to go back and recreate my “error”, only to develop a new recipe.
