The great flavor of portobello mushrooms in a veggie burger.
|Directions||Simmer the lentils in water until tender, about 25 minutes. Let cool, then mash or purée.
Trim, clean, and finely chop the mushrooms.
Sauté onions in 1 T olive oil, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Add mushrooms and cumin and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, add salt and pepper, and remove from heat.
Transfer all ingredients to a single bowl and mix well. Chill for at least one hour.
To cook: Form the mixture into four patties and either fry them over medium heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side, or grill them over coals. Serve hot.
