This recipe is great because you are only using one pot and one bowl. It has about 5 minutes of prep, 30 minutes cooking time and is done.
As the weather is getting colder, there is nothing like having a big pot of soup on the fire. This is my version of lentil soup but feel free to play around with the vegetables you put in!
I used a blend of black and regular lentils (cooking them for the same amount of time) It really helps to place the mixture in the fridge for a bit to hold the burger together more but if you want to eat it right away, just be very cautious when turning it over, best with a spatula and spoon together. If you are eating the burger with cheese, place the cheese on top immediately after flipping it over to the second side.
Make a batch of lentils up to 4 days in advance and whip this dish together in 5 minutes! If you are not a cilantro lover, feel free to substitute it with fresh mint, basil, dill or parsley.
I know there are strange ingredient combinations in this one but you will just have to trust me and taste it. The combination of sweet dates with the greens and cheese is just to die for.
