Cook the lentils according to instructions on packaging. This usually takes around 20 minutes.

Add the garlic and the onion to a non-stick frying pan with a few tbsp water and sauté for around 3 minutes, until fragrant.
Add the cooked lentils, canned tomatoes, sugar, liquid smoke, tamari, paprika and cumin. Simmer, stirring frequently, on a low-medium heat, for around 15 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in the soy yoghurt. Serve immediately in the burger buns with the mushrooms.
