Walnut Pesto Burgers

Pesto makes everything taste great, including a veggie burger! The olives, walnuts, and lentils create the perfect texture for this flavor packed burger. I’ve even made veggie balls with them for a unique addition to spaghetti and marinara.

 

 

I have made many different variations on the veggie burger, but I rarely write down the combinations. I have a tendency to use whatever vegetables are in season along with whatever else is available in my kitchen. Here are some helpful formula guidelines when building a great burger. Get creative! You'll find yourself coming up with some interesting combinations of flavors and textures.

Prep time    15 minutes  

Cook time   20 minutes    

Yield               6 burgers

 

 

🌱Ingredients

  • ½ cup walnuts
  • One 6-ounce can black olives
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked green lentils
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt to taste

👩‍🍳Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place the walnuts, olives, garlic, basil, and oats into a food processor and process until the ingredients are finely ground. Place into a large bowl.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes until crispy around the edges.
  4. Top with avocados, tomatoes, and sprouts or lettuce.

✏️ Tips & Hints

  • Most grocery stores do not carry canned green lentils. I recommend cooking the lentils (about ¾ cup dry lentils covered completely with water) on the stove top using a low-medium temperature while you are preparing the burgers. Lentils can take 25-30 minutes to fully cook and soften.
