High In Healthy Protein And Energy, A Great Go-To Burger Mix For Those Who Are On The Go.
By: Rowanna Watson

My lentil kale burger is great for those with gout, as lentils are low in purine, with the fresh parsley adding a delicious summery flavour.

This is a great, original vegan burger option; don’t feel like you have to be left out!

Ingredients

FOR THE BURGER PATTIES

  • Smoked paprika 4g
  • Ground linseed 20g
  • Fresh kale 100g
  • Fresh minced garlic 5g
  • Water 500ml
  • Salt 2.5g
  • Walnuts, finely chopped 30g
    Nuts
  • Brown lentils, dried  150ml
  • Nutritional yeast 15g
  • Dijon mustard 4g
  • Fresh parsley 50g
  • White onion 55g
  • Black pepper 1.4g

FOR SERVING

 

  • Romaine lettuce, 1 leaf 5g
  • Soft brown rolls, 4 56g
    Gluten
  • Beef tomato, 1 slice  20ml 

Cooking Method

Step 1

Start by mincing the garlic and dicing half an onion.

Step 2

Add the lentils, water, garlic and onion to a pot and simmer for 45 minutes, or until the lentils are soft.

Step 3

Use a grinder/mortar and pestle to grind the linseeds and set aside.

Step 4

Wash and de-stem the kale. Then finely chop in a food processor. Add the parsley bunch and pulse until the greens are finely chopped.

Step 5

Strain the lentils once they are done.

Step 6

Place the lentils back into the pot and add in the ground linseed, kale, paprika, walnuts, salt, pepper, mustard and parsley. Mix thoroughly.

Step 7 

Mash all the ingredients together with a potato masher.

Step 8

Squeeze any excess water out with your hands. Then shape patties about 10 cm diameter and 1.5 cm thick. (The thicker the burger, the better it stays in shape.)

Step 9

Grill or fry the burgers for a few minutes on each side until cooked. Serve with salad or on a wholegrain burger bun.

What Its Good For

Lentils

Lentils are a source of protein and low in fat. They are also low in purines (uric acid) which is really useful for those with gout.

Parsley

Parsley is great for preventing bad breath, boosting your immune system and stimulating digestion. A real herby powerhouse!
