Lentil cutlets with chanterelles - a delicious, original hot dish that can be served for dinner with a side dish of mashed potatoes and a thick white sauce. If you want to surprise guests and home, cook these tender diet burgers. You can replace chanterelles with champignons, because not every month you will meet “forest gold” in the forest or on the market.
I cooked Canadian green lentil cutlets, it cooks for about half an hour, which is convenient, since it will take about the same amount of time to cook the mushrooms. Regular lentils should be soaked in cold water in advance for several hours, so that it boils faster.
Such burgers can be fried in a non-stick frying pan, however, it should be noted that the minced meat from lentils and boiled mushrooms is quite capricious, despite the presence of eggs in it, it strives to crumble, so it is preferable to bake the dish in the oven.
