I love a good meatless burger. I also love any curry dish – especially one with lentils!


1/2 cup Red lentils, raw (rinsed)
1 cup Water
3/4 cup Cashew nuts, salted (raw)
6 tsp Coconut oil
1 small White onion (chopped)
1 cup White mushrooms (chopped)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
2 tsp Curry powder
3 tbsp Water
1/2 cup Rolled oats- Gluten Free (Old Fashioned)
6 leaf Lettuce, romaine (large)



  1. Combine 1 cup of water, lentils, and a dash of salt in a pot. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat, cover partially and simmer 15-20 minutes, or until lentils are very tender.
  3. Place in colander to drain any excess liquid, and set aside to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, place cashews in a skillet and toast over medium-high heat for 4 minutes or until fragrant, and then set aside.
  5. In the same skillet, saute onion over medium heat with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil until transparent.
  6. Add mushrooms, garlic, curry powder, and 3 tablespoons water, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  7. Place cashews and lentils in food processor and pulse until textured.
  8. Transfer to a bowl, add mushroom mixture, and stir in old fashioned oats until mixed well.
  9. Wet hands and form 6 burger patties from mixture.
  10. Cook in remaining coconut oil, using it as needed, over medium heat for 4 minutes on each side or until brown and heated throughout.
  11. Wrap in lettuce, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!



  • This is a great recipe to make extra of and freeze for later. Just form into individual patties, wrap, and freeze for up to thirty days.
  • You can also adjust the curry powder to suit your desired level of spice.
