    • 1/4 Cup gluten-free tamari
    • 1/4 Cup white cooking wine
    • 1 lemon, juiced
    • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
    • Salt & pepper, to taste

  2. In your food processor combine your cooked lentils, cooked quinoa, and saute pan ingredients and pulse until combined.   Form your burgers into 1/2 inch thick & 5 inch wide burgers.  Place them on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes on one side, until golden, and carefully flip and bake for another 15-20 minutes.   P1080884P1080892These burgers also are wonderful frozen!  Double or triple the recipe and form the burgers.  Place them between wax paper and place in a freezer-proof bag. When ready to eat, follow the baking directions above.
  3. Top with my creamy ranch dressing.  I paired my burger with Oven Crinkle Cut Fries.
  4. Enjoy eating whole!P1080922s P1080919 P1080929
