If you are looking for a tasty meatless meal I have a quick and flavorful idea for you: Barbecue Lentil Mushroom Burgers.
Today is the 20th of the month so it’s time for the Crazy Ingredient Challenge. A group of bloggers pick two ingredients not normally paired together and create a dish with them. The ingredient winners this month were: lentils and molasses. I am excited to see what the others came up with. Be sure to scroll below my recipe to see what the rest of the group made and for more information for any bloggers out there that might want to join us.
I am not sure why I struggled with a good combination for these two. Finally the idea of a veggie burger hit me because I am always looking for a new meatless meal this time of year. And these come together in about 30 minutes making it great for a weeknight.
I am going to be honest with you, no one is going to be fooled into thinking this is a ground beef burger. Please don’t even try. Your kids will know you are lying and not trust you again. But make no mistake about it, just because it doesn’t taste like beef doesn’t mean they aren’t scrumptious! The mushrooms add a bit of a crunch so it isn’t a mush patty like some meatless burgers. And the simple barbecue sauce bursts with flavor.
Until next time, happy eating!
