We cooked vegan burgers this time! We figured out our own version, but the truth is that there are as many versions as tastes in the world. So if you don't like the ingredients, dare to experiment in the kitchen and let us know if it worked out.
The main character of our vegan burger are lentils. Lentils are a legume consumed and present in almost every gastronomy around the world in different variants. They are good for a soup, Italians eat it on new years eve for good luck and money, as well as for a curry being the most famous Indian Dahl. In the middle east they make salads and it is a good substitute for meat in all kinds of dishes.
This time, we decided on a lentil burger in order to get a brown color and all the nutritious properties that the legume has, since it is a rich source of proteins and minerals like iron. Let's get our hands into the recipe!
Our burger contains the following ingredients:
- 2 cloves of garlic (or as many as your garlic instinct tell you)
- 1 big potato or 2 small ones
- Half an onion
- 1 can of fair trade lentils
- 1 teaspoon of Fair Trade sambal (optional but recommended if you like some spiciness)
- 1 pinch of Fair Trade black pepper
- 1 pinch of paprika
- 1 pinch of salt
- Burger bread or a pistolet
- Cheese (for the veggies)
This recipe is a great option for those who don't like to cook so much, be sure you have a blender, a mixer or a lot of rage to channel in order to mash the ingredients!
