These Easy Healthy High-Protein Vegan Lentil Burgers are the perfect solution for a crispy high-protein and fiber plant-based burger! Lentil are high on protein and complex carbs, plus, they pack some many other important nutrients.
These vegan lentil burgers are quite healthy too, especially if you bake the patties instead of frying.
I layered the burger buns with hummus, and crunchy veggies.
I grew up eating lentils, but the way I ate them was pretty basic – it was always a stew. As I grew up and my passion for cooking grew, I found other ways to use lentils – and today – it’s a burger recipe. Who knew?

The method is pretty straightforward. You add your ingredients to a food processor, press a button, and there you have it – the patty dough!
