Amelia Freer: The ultimate veggie burger recipe

June 27th 2016 / Amelia Freer / 1 comment


Nutritional therapist Amelia Freer shares her delicious vegetarian red lentil burger recipe

Lentils are a great source of vegan protein and although not strictly paleo, I do use them quite a bit as a healthy alternative to animal protein. They are great in soups but my favourite is to make tasty burgers with them – don’t be afraid to play around with flavours – they are very versatile in taste.


270g Red Lentils

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 carrots, grated

1 tsp tomato puree

2 tsp dried or fresh mixed herbs (I like the waitrose frozen Mediterranean or Thai mixes)

½ cup coconut flour

1 red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped

Zest of 1 lemon (or lime if using Thai flavours)

Sea salt & fresh black pepper

Coconut or Olive oil


1. Fill a pan with boiling water and lentils and simmer till soft.

2. In the meantime, heat a frying pan with 1 tsp coconut or olive oil and add the onion, garlic, carrot, tomato paste and herbs. Cook until tender.

3. Add the lemon or lime zest, salt & pepper.

4. Add the cooked lentils and flour and mix together. (You may need to add a little water if the mixture is too dry)

5. Put in the fridge to cool for 30 miinutes.

6. Mould the mixture into 6 burgers and fry in a little coconut or olive oil until the outside is golden and the middle is warm.

I like to serve these with a simple mixed salad. I hope you enjoy them.

Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http
