Drain the lentils and allow the excess water to drain through the colander.

Place the lentils into a bowl and mash with a potato masher.

Once mashed add in all the other ingredients and stir to combine.

With your hands scoop out a large handful of mixture and roll into a ball.  Place the ball on a lined baking tray and then gently flatten the top of the ball with your hand to make a burger shape.

In a frying pan add some oil. When the oil is hot add the lentil burger and fry for approximately 5 minutes before turning it over to cook the other side  for a further 5 minutes.

When the burger is cooked place in a bread roll with lettuce and tomatoes.  I used my avocado mayo which is on my blog or you could use vegan mayonnaise.  Serve with sweet potato fries, potato wedges, salad, entirely your choice.
