Easy Vegan Burger Recipe | Mary's Test Kitchen

Hey guys, Today, I'll be showing you how to make these super easy mushroom lentil burgers. As always the ingredients are in the description below, but this recipe is fairly flexible so feel free to experiment! I'm using portobello as they have a great juicy bite to them but feel free to use other mushrooms if you like. The first step is to cook down the mushrooms. I'm just

adding them to a hot pan. And then marmite. The smarter thing would have been to dissolve the marmite in water before adding it so maybe do that instead of messing around like I did here. Use about a quarter cup of water or broth if you like The marmite gives the mushroom a rich flavour. If you don't have it, you can use vegemite or miso paste instead. Now we add

more flavour in the form of paprika, onion and garlic powder, and black pepper. Feel free to use any kind of burger spice blend that you like. In only a few minutes, the mushrooms have gotten very soft and most of the water has evaporated. Into the mixing bowl they go. Add a cup of cooked lentils and brown sugar. I got these out of a can but feel free to use

any kind of lentils you like. Beans can also work but I like using these little lentils because they seem to form burgers more easily. Separately, combine a quarter cup of water or broth with a tablespoon of ground flax seed and another quarter cup of lentils. Blend that until smooth and now we this super delicious looking goop. OK, it looks gross but trust, guys. It will all work

out. Stir that in and now everything is sticking together but it's too wet to form into patties. I'm adding a quarter cup of breadcrumbs. This will act as the binder. You can test it now to see if it holds together well. Add a bit more if you need to but try not to add too much. Make sure to taste it and add any seasonings you like. That's one

of the nice things about making vegan burgers; you can taste as you go without worrying too much about ecoli or salmonella. I'm adding two tablespoons of nooch. Which, by the way, is a very veganish way of saying nutritional yeast. It's a form of inactive yeast that has a umami flavour. Sounds weird but used right it tastes great. When making the patties, just scoop up a bunch and pat it

into shape with your clean hands. When they are all ready, it's time to cook. You'll need a little oil to get a nice browning on these burgers. Once your pan is hot, place the patties on and cook for about three minutes. Flip and cook for another three minutes or until each side is as brown as you'd like. And that's it. I'm using these little homemade sweet potato burger buns

that have been toasted in a pan. A well toasted bun makes all the difference, in my opinion. Add whatever toppings you like, and there you have a super easy to make, vegan mushroom lentil burger. The lentils make this burger super filling while the mushrooms add a satisfying bite and little bursts of juicy deliciousness. It's a pretty basic recipe so I hope you take it and run with it. Let

me know how you would dress up this burger in the comments below. Thanks so much for watching and Happy Forth of July Weekend to all of my American friends. Bye for now!
