Delicious and addictive, these little lentil burgers will disappear quickly at your next luncheon or game night.

Serves: 3-4 | Estimated Time: 40-45 min


  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) ground coriander
  • 2 cups canned or 
cooked CLIC brown lentils
  • 50 g Potato flour
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

To serve:

  • Mini hamburger buns or gluten-free buns
  • Grilled eggplant slices
  • Tzatziki Sauce
  • Crispy onions
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Micro herbs


  1.  Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2.  Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic for 3 minutes or until soft. Add the cumin and coriander and cook for a further minute, then remove from the heat. Place the onion mixture, cooked lentils and potato flour in a bowl and season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Use a fork to break the lentil mix down into a coarse mixture. Divide into 8 small portions and shape into patties. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up.
  4. Place on the lined baking tray and bake for 30 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until crisp.
  5. Place a slice of cooked eggplant onto a mini burger bun, followed by a dollop of tzatziki sauce, a Lentil pattie, crispy onion and sunflower seeds and top with micro herbs.
