Featured on The Cafe, Thursday 9 April 2020

mushrooms, lentils, mushroom burgers, meadow mushrooms

Makes 6 burgers (or 4 jumbo size burgers!)


  • 250g mushrooms (I used Meadow Mushrooms small Portabello mushrooms)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tin of lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • Extra breadcrumbs to coat patties
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil for frying
  • Burger rolls


  1. Cook the garlic and onion in oil for a couple of minutes, until soft.
  2. Add the chopped mushrooms and grated carrot, and cook through.
  3. Add in the lentils, mustard, salt and pepper. Cook for a few more minutes until all the ingredients are mixed in.
  4. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl to cool down for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Next, add in one egg and 6 tablespoons of breadcrumbs. Mix well to combine.
  6. Divide the mix into portions – this makes 6 normal burgers or 4 jumbo burgers. Shape into patties using your hands, then coat on both sides with the remaining breadcrumbs.
  7. Heat a little vegetable oil in the frying pan and cook the patties for a couple of minutes on each side, until lightly golden.
  8. Serve in a burger roll with extra fried onion, relishes, sauce, lettuce – or anything you please!
