      Recipe: Savory Herbed Burgers

      With the weather showing signs of warming, now's the perfect time to
      get out your fanciest apron, shine up your favorite spatula, and get
      cooking. For the classic summertime dinnerâ€"burgers, of courseâ€"why
      rely on processed, store-bought patties when you can easily whip up
      extra-flavorful homemade versions? VN dessert columnist Beverly Lynn
      Bennett shows off her savory side with these veggie-packed bun-stuffers.

      What You Need:
      2 cups filtered water
      1/2 cups lentils, sorted and rinsed
      1 bay leaf
      1/2 teaspoon each dried basil, oregano, and thyme
      1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder and chili powder
      1/4 teaspoon each sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
      1/4 cup sun-dried tomato halves, chopped
      1-1/4 cups rolled oats
      1/2 cup spinach, roughly chopped
      1/4 cup each carrot and red onion, finely diced
      1 tablespoon olive oil

      What you do:
      1. In a small saucepan, combine water, lentils, and seasonings, and
      cook over medium-high heat for 25 minutes. Add sun-dried tomatoes and
      continue to cook until lentils are tender and all of the liquid is
      absorbed. Remove saucepan from heat, then remove bay leaf.

      2. With a potato masher, mash lentils . Add remaining ingredients and
      stir well to combine. Allow mixture to cool for 5 minutes, and then
      portion mixture into patties.

      3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Cook the
      burgers over until well browned, about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Add
      additional oil, if needed, to prevent sticking. Serve with all your
      favorite veg fixin's.
