'Lamb' Burger [Vegan]

Serves

6 patties

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 4 cups mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked brown lentils (1 1/2 cups lentils cooked in 3 cups of water for about 30 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (certified gluten free if need be)
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 5 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon marjoram
  • 20 turns fresh black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour

Preparation

  1. Cook the lentils and measure out 2 1/2 cups into a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Place the olive oil in a skillet and saute the onions for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the mushrooms and a sprinkle of salt and cover the pan.
  5. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring a couple of times so they don’t burn.
  6. Add the onions / mushrooms to the lentils along with the oats, tomato paste, garlic, dried basil, dried oregano, dried marjoram, black pepper, salt and tapioca flour.
  7. Mix the ingredients until just combined and then transfer to a food processor.
  8. Process until completely smooth and thoroughly mixed.
  9. Transfer mixture back into a bowl (this isn’t totally necessary but it will make it easier when forming patties).
  10. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and form 6 equal patties (about 3 – 3/12 inches in diameter and 1 1/2 inches thick) with your hands.
  11. Place the patties on the baking sheet, giving some room between each one.
  12. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Notes

These burgers do not fall apart. However, if you want them more dense and hard you can use organic cornstarch instead of tapioca flour. Buy organic to stay away from nasty GMOs.
Top this burgers with your fave ingredients. Suggestions are mayo, red onions, pickles, lettuce and cashew cheese.

I really don't understand why everyone's up-in-arms about it being called lamb, or that vegans like the taste of meat. I'm vegan, not because I don't like meat, but to save the environment and animals (based on the Adamic mandate in Genesis 1 & 2). I often tell people why I'm vegan, which is not because I don't like meat, and this actually educates people who ask. I made this for my carnivore wife, and she liked it a lot :)

I followed this recipe to a T and my burgers came out VERY runny/sloppy. Luckily I only cooked half the mix (because it made a lot more than 6 burgers). For the second half, I added 1 cup of breadcrumbs and 1 tbsp corn starch -- they came out better. Taste is great overall, but consistency leaves something to be desired.

Ok, I think we can finally move away from the "lamb topic". This was surprisingly good! And quite easy. I used rice flour instead of tapioca flour because it was all I had. They were a little softer than some veggie burgers but very good! I will definitely be making these again. And again.

Who cares what it's called! It's vegan. And probably yummy. I intend to find out.

If it's "Bad Ass" shouldn't you call it a donkey burger?

I've never seen a chicken running around in the shape of a nuggets, and I've never seen loaves of bread sprout of the ground. Lots of food is processed, either at home or in a factory. This patty, if you read the ingredients, will taste nothing like meat- which is great for me.. because as a kid I threw my burgers to the dogs at BBQs. I agree with not calling it Lamb, it put me off initially. Sounds good though.
