Lea Michele's Veggie Lentil Burger
It’s always interesting to hear what a celebrity eats to stay looking so darn good. Lea Michele shares some of her snacking secrets to staying gorgeous in her new book, “Brunette Ambition.” Try one of her recipe below for a Veggie Lentil Burger.
Boil the lentils in 2.5 cups of salted water for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Sauté the onion and carrot in olive oil.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the onion, carrots, lentils, pepper, soy sauce, breadcrumbs, and egg. Form the mixture into patties and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Using the same pan, sauté spinach. Squeeze lemon juice over spinach, and spoon it over patty.
Top the burger with anything else that you like — I usually add a slice of pepper jack rice cheese, organic ketchup, and a few slices of avocado.
