Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients
  • Olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • Sea salt
  • One 15-ounce can lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 medium zucchini, coarsely grated or julienned
  • One 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over a medium-high flame. Saute the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, curry powder, turmeric, zucchini, and ½ teaspoon salt. Continue to saute until the zucchini is soft, another 3 minutes. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a medium food processor, pulse the chickpeas, lentils, Dijon, lime juice, cilantro, and ½ teaspoon salt until coarsely pureed. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the lentil mixture, quinoa, and zucchini mixture. Taste for seasoning and add more salt as necessary. Form the mixture into heaping ½ cup sized patties. Arrange on a plate and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, or overnight. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat. Cook the veggie burgers, flattening them with the back of your spatula on the first side, for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Remove to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Then serve open-faced or inside burger buns. Serves 4
