  • 3/4 cup chopped Pecans or Walnuts
  • Canola oil, for cooking with
  • 2 cups Mushrooms
  • 1 Onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed

  1. In a large dry skillet, toast the nuts over medium heat until golden and fragrant. Set them aside. Add the oil to the skillet and sauté the mushrooms and onion for about 5 minutes, until starting to turn golden. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Put the mushrooms and onion in the bowl of a food processor along with the lentils, Worcestershire, salt and pepper and pulse just until the mixture is blended. Transfer it to a bowl and stir in the bread crumbs and pecans.
  3. Shape the mixture into patties and fry them in a little oil in the same skillet set over medium heat. Cook until they’re golden and crusty on both sides, flipping them as you need to.
