These spicy lentil burgers are "meaty" and mean! They are packed full of flavour and nutrition and the milled flax gives a real meat-like consistency.

Instructions
  1. In your high speed blender combine walnuts, flaxseed, garlic, onion, coriander, lemon, all the spices plus the salt and pepper, grind the mixture at medium speed until the walnuts are broken down and all the ingredients are well mixed. You may need to stop a few times to scrape down the blender and stir.
  2. In a large bowl add the flaxseed mixture and lentils and mix together until well combined and a coarse mixture has formed.
  3. Spoon out the mixture (aim for a small fist) roll into balls then flatten into patties.
  4. Heat a little oil in a non stick frying pan at medium heat, add the patties and gently cook turning once for approx. 10 minutes or until slightly crispy and browned.
  5. Serve with sliced avocado, tomato and sprouts.
Recipe Notes

*soak the walnuts to activate them making them more nutritious and removing the phytic acid (enzyme inhibitors)
** soak the lentils overnight so they start to sprout for maximum nutrition, and cook in vegetable stock for extra flavour

TIP: If your burgers are too loose and don't stick together then add some more flax and for best results leave the burger mix to bind for 30 minutes before making into patties.
