The recipe

  • In a medium size frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and carrot and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in red pepper flakes and lentils, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in broth, water and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until lentils are just tender and liquid is absorbed, 22 to 24 minutes. Stir in spinach during last min of cooking.

  • Remove pan from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Stir in bread crumbs and egg. (Add up to 2 tablespoon water if mixture is to dry.)

  • For the sauce, stir yogurt, feta, garlic and dill together in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Scoop heaping 1/2-cup portions of lentil mixture and form into 1-inch-thick patties. Add to pan and cook until golden, about 3 to 4 min. Flip and continue cooking, 3 minutes.

  • Serve on burgers buns topped with sauce and add your favorite toppings!
