Servings: 6
1 large garlic clove, chopped
Cremini mushrooms
½ lb, stems removed
Fresh thyme
1 tbsp, leaves only
Extra virgin olive oil
1+1 tbsps
3 cups, chopped (about 1 large)
Canned lentils
1 cup, drained and rinsed
Whole-wheat bread crumbs
¾ cup
1 large egg, whisked
Kosher salt
1 tsp
Yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup
Goat cheese - 2 oz (about 1/4 cup), crumbled
6 whole-grain buns
8 slices (optional)
Fresh basil (optional)
  1. In a food processor, pulse the mushrooms with garlic and thyme until finely chopped and well combined.
  2. In a medium skillet, pre-heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Cook the onions for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Stir in the mixture from the food processor; cook for 2 or 3 minutes more until liquid evaporates and remove from heat. Let cool.
  3. Add the lentils into a large bowl; stir in the mushroom mixture; add bread crumbs, egg and salt, mix well. Moisten your hands and form 8 patties (take about ½ cup of the mixture per patty). Add the cornmeal into a plate and evenly coat the patties on both sides.
  4. In a non-stick skillet, pre-heat the olive oil over medium heat. Cook patties for about 3 minutes on one side until golden brown. Flip the patties over; cover each with cheese. Cook for another 3 minutes or enough to let the cheese melt. Top the burgers with tomato slices and basil leaves (if desired), place between whole-grain buns and serve.
