1 cup dry lentils, well rinsed
2-1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 medium carrot, grated
2 teaspoons dried herb of choice
1 teaspoon soy sauce or liquid aminos, optional
3/4 cup rolled oats, finely ground (a clean coffee grinder or food processor works wonderfully)
3/4 cup bread crumbs
Place the lentils, water, and salt in saucepan, bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes, until water is nearly gone and lentils are very soft, with splitting skins. Sauté the onion and carrot in oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Mix the lentils, onions, carrots, pepper, herb, and optional soy sauce in the large bowl, then mix in the ground oats and bread crumbs.
While still warm, form the lentil mixture into patties. To cook, heat a bit of oil in a frying pan, place a burger on top, and fry until brown, 1-2 minutes. Repeat on other side and serve.
