Gerbil Burgers

These are not made of gerbils. I promise.

The story is that I SAID “lentil burgers” and my friend thought I said “GERBIL BURGERS”

so… that’s what we call them now.  Humor. ha.

Gerbil Burgers

  • 1 C lentils
  • 1 T oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 15 oz can chickpeas-drained
  • 1 T fresh ginger-minced
  • 1 egg – replace–
  • 2 T chopped cilantro
  • 2  C GF breadcrumbs

Cook the lentils.

Cook the onions in the oil, add the spice mix, and let cool.

Stir ½ of the cooked lentils, ginger, “egg” and onion mixture in food processor until smooth. Stir in remaining lentils, parsley, cilantro and breadcrumbs. Divide into 10 portions. Shape into patties. Toss them in potato starch.

Cook on BBQ 3 minutes on each side until browned. Or pan fry.
