Mini Lentil Burgers with Tomato Relish Recipe

Mini Lentil Burgers with Tomato Relish Recipes

Ingredients :

1 cup (185g / 6 oz) brown lentils

1 bay leaf

1 medium onion, roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 small leek, finely sliced

1 small carrot, grated

1 cup (80g / 2.7 oz) fresh breadcrumbs

2 egg yolks

2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon (or coriander)

2-3 tbsp oil bread, to serve, optional ready-made tomato relish, to serve

Method :

Place the lentils and bay leaf in a medium pan, cover with plenty of water, bring to the boil and simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, or until tender; drain well and discard the bay leaf. Place half the cooked lentils, with the onion and garlic, in a food processor and process until the mixture forms a fine paste. Transfer to a medium bowl and mix with the remaining lentils, leek, carrot, breadcrumbs, egg yolks and tarragon; season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roll level tablespoonful of the mixture into mini burgers.

Heat some of the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the mini burgers until they are browned on both sides, adding more oil as necessary; drain on paper towels. Serve warm, on slices of trimmed bred or toast if you like, with tomato relish on the top.

Do ahead - Burgers can be made a day ahead and reheated in the oven close to serving.
