Glad you liked the veggie burger recipes. Here's another unusual one. Hope  
you enjoy it! If you're looking for anything in particular, feel free to  
email me and I'll look to see if I have it!!!

originator of this recipe:)

Kirmizi Mercimek Koftesi (Red Lentil Burgers) (VLF)

1 cup red lentils
1.5 cups hot water
1 vegetable bouillion cube
1/4 cup fresh, chopped parsley
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, finely minced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
corn flour for binding
cooking spray or oil

Boil the lentils with the bouillion and water. When the lentils are cooked,
all the water should be absorbed. If the lentils are watery, let them sit to
absorb the rest of the moisture. When the lentils are cooked and relatively
cooled, add the parsley, garlic, onion, and spices. If the mixture is watery,
add some corn flour to bind the ingredients. Shape the lentils into patties
and broil in oven or fry in skillet. Garnish the lentil 'kofte' like you would
a burger.
