Last week, I wanted to get out of a food rut. I felt as if all I was eating were fish and veggies. Don’t get me wrong…I will always LOVE fish and veggies, but I missed cooking and causing some “treble” in the kitchen.<—pun intended!
I knew that I needed to switch things up, and I had a GIANT bag of lentils in my cupboard, so I decided to put them to use in a tasty homemade veggie burger recipe.
Lentils are a great vegetarian source of protein and fiber, but can be a bit intimidating to cook with. This recipe puts those lentils to use, and I promise it is super simple 🙂
Lentil Spinach Greek Burgers
Yields: 4 servings
Greek Yogurt Sauce Ingredients:
2. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts, and make these 4 parts into burger shaped patties.
3. Place the patties on a greased baking sheet.
4. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes, or until hot all the way through.
5. While the burgers are baking, in a small bowl combine the remaining dill, garlic, lemon juice, Greek yogurt, chopped cucumber, and salt for a tasty Greek yogurt sauce that really makes the burger!
*These burgers can be cooked, then stored in the fridge for about a week for an easy and quick meal option!

Thank-you, made these this evening! I really liked the fact they are baked, rather than fried.
You are so welcome!!! 🙂 Glad you liked them!
Lentils are amazing, aren’t they?? These burgers sound SO good! I love the Mediterranean flavors that you used :).
They really are tasty!! Lentils are like a little hidden gem, I don’t use them nearly as often as I should!
