Lentil Burgers With Tzatziki Sauce

Lentil Burgers With Tzatziki Sauce
In This Article

Forget those highly processed veggie burgers at the supermarket, you can make your own with stuff you have in your pantry! These DIY burgers provide 27 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber, so they’re as satisfying as they are delicious. Small, dark green, French lentils (sometimes labeled “lentils du puy”) hold their shape when cooked, so these burgers have a great texture that is more “burgery” than most soy-based patties.

Lentils contain a kind of carbohydrate called galacto-oligosaccharides, which are considered a prebiotic. Prebiotics are not fully digested and absorbed; instead, they feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut.
