Healthy Red Lentil Burgers

I usually have a case of the ‘Manic Mondays’. You know, running here, there and everywhere. I decided to prep dinner for Monday on Sunday night to save time and energy. I wanted something that would taste fresh and be ready in approximately 10 minutes. My recent love affair with lentils lead me to a Red Lentil Burgers from Pinterest.

I adapted the patty recipe to my own, and I rather liked it. The recipe is simple and delicious. These were all that I hoped they would be and more. These burgers are crunchy on the outside and moist but tender on the inside. Not to mention easy to prepare and something I can make ahead of time.
