  • Conventional oven
  • Blender or food processor
  • Mixing bowl
  • Baking tray
  • Parchment paper


  • 1 cup red lentils dry
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup carrot peeled and grated
  • 2 tsp mustard ensure vegan and gluten-free
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tbsp tamari


  • First, preheat the oven t0 180 degrees C/350 F. Meanwhile, cook the lentils according to packaging instructions until softened, but not mushy - this usually takes around 7-8 minutes. Drain and rinse when done.
  • Add the walnuts and lentils to a blender or food processor. Pulse until a walnut 'paste' forms.
  • Transfer the walnut and lentil mixture to a large mixing bowl together with the oat flour, carrot, mustard, paprika, cumin, dried basil and tamari. Stir together really well, using your hands if necessary to form a 'dough'.
  • Using around 1/3-1/2 cup dough per burger, shape the dough into patties and lay them out on a sheet of baking paper over a baking tray.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
