VMM8 Buffalo Burgers

I haven’t been writing, running, or doing much at all the last couple weeks, I guess I took a mini vacation from all the little things.  It would have been very cool except for the part where I am now kind of behind on everything.  Oh well, now I have plenty to write about in the coming weeks!

I have a super simple (this does seem to be my thing) vegan recipe to share for Meatless Monday, this one is just as good as it is easy!

3 Ingredient Buffalo Burgers:

  • 1 cup dry lentils, cooked according to package and strained
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal, run through the food processor (after measuring)
  • 1/2 cup Red Hot hot sauce
  • oil to fry in

Toppings:

  • Sliced onion, tomato and pickles
  • Lettuce torn into bun sized pieces (I used red leaf)

Mix the first 3 ingredients, make into patties and cook in the frying pan with a bit of oil. I used a 1/3 measuring cup and scraped off the top to measure them into patties, then squished them down a bit with a fork.  This worked perfect since I served them on dinner rolls from the bakery.

Serve on buns or rolls with toppings of your choice.

We didn’t use any condiments and they were really good.  My kids even asked for seconds which is a minor miracle since they saw that I made them with beans, they both originally asked if they could just have rolls for dinner.  Yes, they are THOSE kids that automatically equate healthy with oh-my-god-gross.  Lucky me!
