Servings: patties
Instructions
  1. Cook the lentils in boiling water in a pan until tender. About 10 minutes. Drain and add to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add half the chickpeas, the onion, garlic and lemon juice into a high powered blender and blend to a paste.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients along with the chickpea-paste into the bowl with the lentils. Time to get your hands dirty!
  4. With clean hands, combine the mixture well and form into approx. 8 patties.
  5. Fry the patties in a little oil in a frying pan until lightly browned, about 5 minutes each side.
  6. Serve on fresh burger buns with houmous, a slice of vegan cheese, lettuce and tomatoes and a little bit of vegan mayo.
Recipe Notes

Add some spice and use sriracha instead of mayo, or make sriracha mayo! Instead of the lettuce and tomato you could use fried onions.

Vegan Chilli Cheese

Vegan Chilli Cheese
Print Recipe
This vegan "cheese" is made with cashews, almond milk and a couple of different starches. Agar Agar powder holds it all together. This type is fairly soft, but it can be sliced, spread and it melts! Not really ideal for grating, although it does work on a pizza and cheese on toast! Next time I'll make a harder cheese that's better for grating and sandwiches.

Instructions
  1. Mix the agar agar powder and almond milk in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
  2. Add cashews, oil, salt, vinegar, turmeric, garlic, nutritional yeast, chilli, both starches, gram flour, lemon juice and 150ml water to a blender. Blend until the mixture is very smooth.
  3. Add the blended mixture to the pan with the agar agar and almond milk and turn up the heat so it's simmering. Cook for about 10 minutes until it becomes thick, like very thick pancake batter. If it's thick before it's had a chance to cook then add a splash of almond milk; you don't want to under cook it or you'll taste the raw gram flour and starches. Quickly transfer to a greased glass dish or ramekins before the agar agar sets.
  4. Set aside to cool for an hour before transferring to the fridge. Come back a few hours later and it would have set. It should just fall out of the container fairly easily.
Recipe Notes

When the mixture is boiling away, you could add some sweet jalapenos, habaneros, more garlic and rosemary to make more of a Pepper Jack style cheese. Or you could leave out the chilli altogether to make a mild cheese. To make it harder and grateable, reduce the amount of almond milk and water you use.

Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients to the high-speed food processor you use to make smoothies and blend into a coarse paste.
  2. Spread onto one side of vegan-buttered bread. I used cucumber for the other side, but is just as nice with lettuce (or both!).
