Vegan Lentil Burgers with Cauliflower Fried Rice

This is super tasty meal i created and James favourite meal at the moment, great amount of protein and super filling! The below quantity makes quite a few burgers, so I form the number of burgers from the mixture that I want, then cover the mixture and place in the fridge until needed again (or make extra and take to work the next day).

•   ½ cup lentils-I used red•   1 small bunch parsley, chopped•   ½ medium onion, diced•   1 large egg•   1 pepper (I used half
orange and half yellow), chopped•   ¼ cup almond flour •   1 tsp smoked paprika•   ½ tsp spicy paprika•   ½ tsp chili flakes•   Himalayan sea salt and ground pepper, to taste•   Coconut oil, for frying


Add lentils in a pot and cover them with water. Let them boil for about 15 minutes and then remove from heat.                                                                Strain the lentils and blend.                                                                                   Add all ingredients together until it has a dough-like consistency, form into burgers and leave in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.                                               Add coconut oil to a pan, and fry each burger for about 2 minutes on each side.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

•   1
head of small cauliflower•   2
Tbs coconut oil•   ¼ small onion, chopped•   ½ cup frozen peas, broccoli and carrots, thawed and chopped•   2
Tablespoons organic balsamic•   2
eggs, lightly beaten


Rinse and chop the cauliflower and blend until the cauliflower resembles rice. (you can also use a grater)                                                                              Preheat a large wok. With coconut oil, add onion, peas and carrots and fry until tender.                                                                                                                  Slide the onion, peas and carrots to the side, and pour the beaten eggs onto the other side. Using a spatula, scramble the eggs. Once cooked, mix the eggs with the vegetable mix.                                                                                      Add the cauliflower to the veggie and egg mixture. Pour the balsamic on top. Stir and fry the rice and veggie mixture until heated through and cauliflower is tender.
