1 carrot, peeled and finely grated
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
2 cups cooked brown lentils
½ cup cooked chickpeas
2 large eggs
½ cup oat flour
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon hot sauce
½ teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Oat flour for dusting
High quality extra-virgin olive oil, for the pan
1. Mash the lentils and chickpeas.
2. Add the eggs and mix.
3. Slowly combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix until it has the consistency of chunky hummus. You should be able to make a patty out of the mixture. If it is too wet, add some more oat flour, lentils or chickpeas.
4. Create 6 patties out of the mixture and dust with oat flour.
5. Heat oil or butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. Cook the burgers in batches until they are crispy on the bottom for approximately 5 minutes. When you are sure the mixture will hold together flip the burgers and continue cooking for 5 more minutes.
