.25 cup (60 mL) Finely diced onion
2 Cloves garlic, minced
.5 cup (125 mL) Finely diced red pepper
.5 tsp (2 mL) Cumin
1 tsp (5 mL) Paprika
Pinch cayenne
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) Soy sauce
1 (19 oz/540 mL) Can brown lentils, drained
.25 cup (60 mL) Sunflower seeds, toasted
.33 cup (80 mL) Quick cooking oats
.25 cup (60 mL) Dry bread crumbs
.25 cup (60 mL) Nutritional yeast flakes
2 tbsp (30 mL) Chopped fresh basil
Freshly chopped chives
.25 cup (60 mL) Greek yogurt
4 Radishes,sliced
4 Dempster’s® Deluxe Hamburger Buns


HEAT 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and red peppers. Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cumin, paprika, cayenne, pepper and soy sauce. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

PLACE lentils in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Add onion mixture, sunflower seeds, oats, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast flakes and basil. Pulse until mixture is combined. If mixture is too crumbly drizzle in 2-3 tbsp (30-45 mL) water and pulse to combine.

DIVIDE mixture into 4 equal portions. Form into patties and place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until ready to use.

COMBINE chives, yogurt and radishes in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.

HEAT remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place patties in the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes per side or until golden brown and hot.

ASSEMBLE veggie burgers by placing a handful of arugula on the bottom half of each bun. Top with a veggie patty, a spoonful of radish-yogurt mixture and bun tops.
