“Working with children and youth is my calling, so most of my cooking experiments are kid-friendly,” says Mary Jane Wagner. “My husband and I have five children of our own (three grown, two teenagers), plus two teenage boys from Ghana live with us. I make these for my family, and four teenagers can eat quite a lot! They enjoy them with ketchup or barbecue sauce.”
  • 1 15-oz. can lentils, rinsed and drained
  • ½ large onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded (1 cup)
  • ¾ cup prepared marinara sauce
  • ¾ cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free pancake mix
  • 1 Tbs. Bob’s Red Mill nutritional yeast

1. Combine all ingredients in large bowl.

2. Spray large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Scoop batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto hot skillet, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until bottoms of patties have browned. Flip, cover pan, and cook 5 to 7 minutes more, or until browned on both sides and vegetables have softened.

I made these today & really liked them. I changed & used refried black beans instead & barbecue sauce with a little ketchup instead of marinara. Easier than others I've made & delicious.

This looks like it would be easy and not expensive to make. I'm going to try it ASAP. Thank you for the recipe.

Is the bun vegan as well? If so, please provide name/brand. Thanks!

I have a nut allergy, but would like to fix these for my son and be able to eat the too. Can you suggest a good substitute for the walnuts?

Maybe I'd try but don't thx I'll make it.

@parul Marinara is a meatless tomato sauce usually used for pasta. Pancake mix for home made veggie burgers... I can maybe do this! :)

Why must you show recipes with ingredients only available in I presume the USA. Can u show the recipe with normally available ingredients please and a sub for those of us who cannot eat yeast.

The pancake mix's ingredients include flours, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Since this is not something I keep on hand, I'll try making it with just flour but I'm wondering if the baking powder and soda are integral to the recipe or not. If so, how much do I add?

@Phicap buy dry lentils add your own onion/bay leaf while you soak them, use flour of your choice it just won't have the sweetness of a pancake mix. @Tami, you could use the cornbread mix but again, it won't have the little bit of sweetness and fine texture of the pancake mix. I like the texture of cornbread or even brown rice flour. If you want a little sweetness, add just a touch of agave or honey. That's my take for all it's worth. LoL :)

What is marinara sauce pls.

parul - 2014-02-06 23:32:13

just wishing it was not made with mix or canned lentils you cannot find abroad... otherwise sounds delicious.

I have some BRM Gluten Free Cornbread you think I could use that instead of the pancake mix?

I have made alot of veggie burgers over the years, this is one of my favorites, holds together well, lower sodium than any you can find pre made, and everyone loves it!
