Serves: 14 Prep: 10 Cook: 20 minutes.  Recipe can be halved for a smaller portion.


1 small onion, finely chopped
430g can brown lentils
1 tsp Marmite™
2 tbs crunchy peanut butter
2 tbs tomato paste with garlic and herbs
½ tsp salt
½ tsp mixed herbs
½ tsp dried basil leaves
½ cup carrot, grated
½ cup celery, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 cups cooked brown short-grain rice
½ cup dry breadcrumbs, extra
2 tbs oil


Place all ingredients, except the extra breadcrumbs and oil, in a large bowl. Mix well.

Using a ¼ cup measure, shape the mixture into 14 burgers. Coat with the extra breadcrumbs and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat 1 tbs oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook half the burgers over medium heat, for 5 minutes each side, until golden and crisp.

Repeat with the second batch of burgers, using the remaining oil.

Serve in burger buns with salad or coleslaw.
