    The Steps to Take

    Step 1

    Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and mushrooms for 8 to 10 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add the garlic and saute for another minute. Drain off all the excess liquid.

    Step 2

    In a food processor, combine the mushroom and onion mix, walnuts, half the lentils, tabasco sauce, paprika and chili powder. Pulse until smooth. Transfer into a large mixing bowl and add almond flour, parsley, sea salt, black pepper and remaining lentils. Mix well. (Note: Add more almond flour 1 tbsp at a time if your mixture is too wet.)

    Step 3

    Use a 1/3 measuring cup to measure out even amount of the mix and form them into patties with your hands or use a round cookie cutter or large mason jar lid to make perfect patties. Place them on a piece of parchment paper.

     Step 4

    Heat the grill over medium heat. Grill the patties for 10 to 15 minutes per side and then gently flip. Brush each side with a bit of olive oil before and after flipping.

     Step 5

    Remove from grill and top the burgers with your favourite burger fixings and enjoy!

     Notes:

    More Carbs, Serve it on a gluten-free bun or in a wrap. Keep it Light, Serve on a bed of greens or collard green wraps. Extra Flavour, Brush the patties with clean BBQ sauce while grilling. No BBQ, Preheat oven to 375ºF (191ºC) and bake the patties for 15 to 20 minutes per side. Toppings, Sprouts, avocado, tomato, goat cheese, feta cheese, mustard or greens.
