Chickpea Lentil Burgers


This recipe came in a section of the newspaper that had a "meatless monday" recipe. It is supposed to have a variety of cheese in it but I left them out. The recipe also said it makes 4 burgers but it was like enough for about 10. I froze the extra patties for future quick meals. They turned out great and we had them with some homemade french fries. Yum!
1 onion, diced (I did half yellow half red)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups lentils
1 1/2 cups chickpeas
1 tbl tahini
2 cups breadcrumbs
salt/pepper to taste
 Heat onion and garlic in a medium size skillet.

Add seasonings and remove from heat. Place lentils and chickpeas in a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped. Add onion mixture and tahini to the food processor. Pulse until smooth.
Place mixture in a bowl with breadcrumbs and mix by hand. Form patties and cook them in a skillet, cast iron worked well. Serve on a bun or toasted bread with fixings. Enjoy!
