These flavorful, hearty burgers may be a bit crumbly; if you prefer, add a binder such as an egg or soaked ground flaxseed. They’re terrific on focaccia with tomato and red onion. To make 1½ cups cooked lentils, combine ¾ cup dried lentils with 1½ cups water; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 20–30 minutes. Use your food processor or blender to finely chop nuts, but don’t overprocess or you’ll end up with nut butter.

(Prep time includes 1 hour chill time.)

Directions
  1. Combine cooked lentils and vinegar; mash. Set aside.
  2. In a large sauté pan, add olive oil and sauté celery, onion, and garlic until celery and onion are slightly opaque. Add mushrooms, sherry, and nuts; sauté for a few more minutes, just enough to soften mushrooms. Add all remaining ingredients. Combine with lentil mixture, mixing well. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  3. Form chilled mixture into six patties. Heat a little oil in a frying pan; add patties and cook until warmed through, flipping once, 2–3 minutes per side.
