Lentil Burgers

Vegan lentil burgers

These lentil burgers are very hearty and filling.  The lentils give the burgers a meaty flavor and add lots of protein.  They would be great done on the grill for a BBQ this summer.

 

Lentil Meatballs

Vegan Lentil meatballs served over whole wheat pasta.

This is an updated version of my “no”meatball recipe.  I replaced the chickpeas with lentils and they turned out really good.  The lentils give the meatballs a meatier flavor and texture plus they add lots of protein.  Lentil meatballs are perfect served over whole wheat pasta.

 

Lentil “Meat”Loaf

Lentil Meatloaf

Lentil “Meat”loaf is very hearty and full of great flavors, but it has very little fat unlike a traditional meatloaf.  The lentils and the mushrooms really give this a meaty flavor.  The lentils also provide a ton of protein.   This would go great with mashed potatoes and gravy.

 

Shepherd’s Garden Pie

This is not your typical shepherd’s pie.  This one is full of veggies, as well as lentils.  The topping is a combination of sweet potatoes and regular potatoes mashed together.  The whole family loved this recipe.
