2 cloves garlic, minced

olive oil, to taste

1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

1 ½ teaspoons paprika

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

5 burger buns

dijon mustard

sliced tomato

fresh spring mix

ketchup, for serving

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F

To make the flax egg, combine the flax meal and water in a small mason jars and shake. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the mushrooms and cook until most of the juices have evaporated, 7-8 minutes.

Add the soy sauce and paprika and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Set aside in a large bowl.

Heat another tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the onion and cook for 3-5 minutes, until semi-translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the salt and pepper and cook for another 2 minutes.

Transfer the onion to a food processor, then add the lentils, oats, and flax egg. Pulse until chunky, about 10-15 pulses.

Transfer the lentil mixture to the bowl with the mushrooms. Mix well, using your hands if needed, then shape into 5-6 patties. Place on a baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap, then freeze for 20 minutes.

While the patties are freezing, prepare the fries. In a medium bowl, toss the potatoes, a drizzle of olive oil, the paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until well-coated.

Spread the fries on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the patties from freezer. In a large saucepan, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add 2-3 patties, careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for 5 minutes on other side. Repeat with the remaining patties.

All together now!

To assemble the burgers, top each bun with a patty, then layer on dijon mustard, tomato slices, and spring mix

Serve the fries with ketchup & enjoy!
