Veggie Burgers

When my husband is away, I'm guilty of indulging in "girl dinner" instead of making a complete and nutritious meal most nights. For those who don't know what girl dinner is, it's basically a snack board instead of a full meal, like a few pickles, a handful of chips, a string cheese and a glass of wine. Just a mishmash of randomness tossed onto a plate and considered dinner. I found myself suggesting mashed potatoes and garlic bread for supper earlier this week. Needless to say, my daughter was not impressed. We ended up sitting down and brainstorming several options for the week that wouldn't look like a picky toddler pieced together our meal plan. With our busy schedules, I've let Jason take over most of the cooking duties this past year, I've forgotten how much I enjoy making real meals for myself. Allison and I have been indulging in old favorites, like broccoli and cheddar soup, black bean taco bowls, and risotto, to new favorites, like these Veggie Burgers that I pulled from Golden Blossom Honey. 

Now veggie burgers are nothing new in the Mahoney house, but I usually make mine with black beans, so I was excited to try out a new way to make them with lentils. It did seem like these were a lot less messier to patty up over my old recipe and they cooked up exactly the same, without any crumbling or falling apart. However, I did increase the breadcrumbs to 1.5 cups because I've learned my lesson on veggie burger cooking over the years that most patties will fall apart unless you have a really hefty amount of the binding agent mixed in. What I liked best about this recipe is the mixture doesn't need cooked all at one time. I can scoop out what I need to make one patty for lunch or dinner, then leave the remaining in the refrigerator for up to a few days and use up the rest as needed. No excuses for picking at bits and pieces of what I find in the fridge or cabinets when I have the prep already done for nutritious eats. 


3/4 cup dry lentils

1 1/2 cups water

2 Tablespoons cider vinegar

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 cup onion, minced


5 large garlic cloves, minced

10 large mushrooms, minced

1/2 cup walnut bits

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup bread crumbs

Are you guilty of girl dinner eating when you only have yourself to feed?  


  1. I do ever so love veggie burgers! I usually make them with carrots, you grate a few big carrots, ad seasonings and then add a cup of ground oats and a bit of soaked flax seeds as binder. It is very tasty, easy and everything in it is healthy.
    Since I only always have myself to feed I always feed myself as a beggar LOL

  2. I rarely eat alone anymore. If I do, I usually do the absolute easiest thing

  3. This post made me hungry. I like that bear honey jar.

    God bless.

  4. I absolutely eat girl dinners when I get the chance. Usually it’s olives and cheese and then an apple with sun butter. When I was single, it was either popcorn or saltines with jelly, cuz I was poor!

  5. I've tried a few vegie meat alternatives and didn't care for them. It's just not for me.

  6. i didn't feel like making dinner tonight and pieced together a girl meal for myself, lol .My son wasn't feeling it, so I took him to Culver's, hahahhaa. The ultimate lazy dinner and he was thrilled. Nice that you can refrigerator the veggie burger mix to make later in the week instead of having to make it all at once.

  7. Gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso.

  8. If you call "girl dinner" a "tasting menu," it makes it so much more expensive!

  9. Oh no, you made me hungry :D Looks delicious!

  10. Good when you know not to let the patties fall apart, unlike uncle pattie who just falls apart daily lol, and can keep for later too. And looking like a picky toddler meal may not work with no toddler around lol

  11. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I would be making this.

  13. Looks more delicious than the meat ones. I love it.
