Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Prepare using 1 rinsed can (19 fl oz/540 mL) cooked green lentils.
How to Grill the Lentil Burgers
Heat greased barbecue to medium-high heat. Grill patties 15 min. or until heated through, turning after 8 min.
These flavourful lentil patties can be shaped ahead of time. Freeze up to 1 month. When ready to serve, cook patties as directed, increasing the cooking time as needed until burgers are heated through. (No need to thaw frozen patties before cooking.)
How to Cook the Dry Lentils
Add 1-1/4 cups uncooked dry red lentils to 1 L boiling water in saucepan; stir. Return water to boil; cook 10 min. or until lentils are very tender and beginning to fall apart. Drain in fine-mesh strainer; press gently on beans to remove excess liquid. Cool.
