Vegan Lentil Quinoa SlidersThe weather is getting warmer and that means grillin’ time! For veggies, grillin’ means veggie dogs and veggie burgers so this is my contribution to put a twist on the usual veggie burger. They are sweet, savory and small!! Yay for sliders!

  • 1 small sweet potato, baked
  • 1/4 cup dry quinoa
  • 1/4 cup dry oats
  • 15-ounce lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
 (Your choice of gluten free flour if you are gluten free)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Peel, dice, and steam the sweet potato until soft. Cook the quinoa and oats in separate pots.

In a food processor, combine garbanzo beans, sweet potato, parsley, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt and pepper, flour, and one tablespoon oil.

In a separate bowl, mix the bean mixture with the quinoa and oats. Using hands, form into twelve small patties.

Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium heat. Brown both sides of each burger.

Serve on a toasted slider buns and top with chopped salad greens, dressed with a drizzle of olive oil, lemon, salt & pepper. If you want to nix the bun, serve the patty on a bed of dressed dark leafy greens.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Can’t wait to try it. However, there is a goof. In the ingredients list, you wrote “lentils”, but in the instructions, you wrote “garbanzo beans”. I presume you really meant to say lentils. Happy eating!
