The patties are the very essence of any burger and add uniqueness to it. These may contain meats or vegetarian ingredients such as legumes and other plant-derived proteins. I like to use plant-based proteins, so I have used sprouted moong beans for this vegan lentil burger recipe. If you want, you can pan-fry the patties, but I prefer baking. Whatever the method, the patties taste yummy.
Mostly, the veggie burger option appears at the bottom of a menu, and sometimes it is completely missing out. There are few possibilities for a vegan lentil burger in most of the fast-food chains. However, with the given climate change and cancer-causing carcinogens found in many meat products, people are now turning to vegan options. Read more about vegan proteins here.
I always encourage people to either carry their healthy supper from home or find healthy options whenever out. Such efforts always pay you back with good health in the long run. So go ahead and try this recipe. This particular recipe is a favorite in our house, especially during weekends. It is a quick, easy, healthy recipe, and the essential part is it is delicious.
