The base of these vegetarian burgers is made of the flavourful lentils and veggies drained from lentil soup. Be sure they’re well drained before mixing them with the panko and seasonings so they stay together better when formed into patties. If it starts to come apart slightly when you turn the patties over, just push it back together with your spatula. Once placed on the bun and topped with feta and yogurt sauce, you’ll never notice the cracks.
