1 cup lentils
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon tomato paste
8 oz. cremini mushrooms, chopped
½ cup sliced almonds
1 lemon juiced
¾ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg, whipped
Bowery Butterhead, for topping
4 buns and cheese of your choice, for topping
Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a sheet tray with parchment. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt, then add lentils and cook until al dente, about 30 minutes.
In a large sauté pan drizzle olive oil and sauté onion, carrot, garlic, fresh thyme and salt. When translucent add tomato paste and cremini mushrooms. Cook until wilted and remove to a bowl to cool.
To the bowl, add cooked lentils, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs and egg. Stir it up and then ball the mixture to form 4 patties. Bake for 20-25 minutes and place on a bun with desired cheese, perhaps an avocado smash and Bowery Butterhead.
