Sweet Lentil Brussel Burgers

by Lori and Michelle on January 28, 2011


We love making burgers although apparently we favor lentil burgers.


And last week we enjoyed a lentil squash burger, featuring two special ingredients:

DSC_0028 Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes


Sweet Lentil Brussel Burger (gluten-free, vegan, soy-free)


  • 2 cup cooked lentils (we used sprouted lentils)
  • 1 small sweet potato, steamed and mashed
  • 1 cup brussel sprouts (we steamed ours)



  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp dulse flakes
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander


Adjust spices to your liking!


Place all ingredients into food processor and pulse till combined. We like our burgers with some texture, so we do not pulse all the way.


Form into patties. Place on a medium heat lightly oiled skillet and cook for a few minutes on each side. *On a few of our burgers we experimented with lightly coating them in garbanzo bean flour to see if it helped get them a more crispy outside. And it did!

We served our gluten-free vegan sweet lentil brussel burgers with our beloved avocado cream sauce.




Have a wonderful evening!

Till next time,

Pure2raw Twins

Mmmm! I’m bookmarking this for sure! I love lentil burgers and yours look so darn good! I’ll have to try the garbanzo flour trick.

These look amazing and simple, I can’t wait to try them. Thanks!

Jennifer and Jaclyn @ sketch-free vegan January 28, 2011 at 2:57 pm

looks awesome guys! i swear cumin and coriander is a match made in vegan heaven.

Pure2 January 28, 2011 at 3:05 pm

Jennifer and Jaclyn – haha yes those two our favorite spices!

Ana January 28, 2011 at 3:12 pm

They look absolutely delicious, I love lentil burgers too! I usually blend part of the lentils and leave some whole ones when I make lentil burgers or lentil loaf – the trick is blending enough so it doesn’t desintegrate ;-)
And I agree with you guys and Jennifer and Jaclyn, cumin and coriander are a wonderful combo!

I can’t believe how delicious (and easy!) these look. Bookmarking ASAP :)

Its crazy how some of the most amazing recipes call for only a few ingredients. YUM!

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather January 31, 2011 at 8:59 am

Ladies these sound great! Lentil and sweet potatoes go hand in hand and brussels are my favorite. These will be made ASAP. How do you think they freeze?

Pure2 January 31, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Yes Heather I think they would freeze.

Sara (Viva Catalina) February 1, 2011 at 7:42 pm

This looks DIVINE! Where do you get the dulse flakes??

Pure2 February 1, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Sara, I believe Natural zing or Mountain rose herbs sell them, some other raw foods online stores sell them too.

Lori February 7, 2011 at 3:39 pm

That’s it?! I LOVE it. Sooooooo easy! And they look so delicious! I have to make these!

nelly February 16, 2011 at 11:28 am

i need to try these…they are just so beautiful and tasty looking!!!


nelly February 16, 2011 at 11:29 am

oh and the colours on the spice plate are so lovely…what is the purply looking spice? dulse flakes?

Pure2 February 16, 2011 at 12:14 pm

Nelly you are right, it is dulse flakes, we try in incorporate that seaweed more!

Alicia February 26, 2011 at 7:48 am

After lightly spraying the patties with an oil (olive or canola) and dusting them with garbanzo bean flour, bake them on top of a cookie cooling rack placed in a pizza pan or cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. They brown and crisp on Both sides!!

Pure2 February 26, 2011 at 8:48 am

Thanks for sharing Alicia that is awesome!

Annie March 5, 2013 at 9:26 pm

Do you think you could freeze these?

Lori and Michelle March 8, 2013 at 9:58 am

Annie yes!
