1 cup lentils (red or green)
1 1/2 cups water
1 tbsp vegetable base or bouillon
1/2 a small onion, diced
3 cloves raw garlic, minced
3/4 cup cooked wilted spinach
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper
1. Simmer lentils in water for about 25 minutes or until cooked. Add the bouillon/base about halfway through cook time.
2. Transfer cooked lentils to a bowl and add the onion, garlic, spinach, cumin, and paprika. Mash until about 1/2 the lentils are still whole. Olive oil can help to bind it, but it's not necessary.
3. Shape the mixture into individual "burger"-sized pieces.
4. Sautee for about 10-15 minutes until burgers are slightly crispy on the outside. Add salt and pepper as you cook.
