  1. Put the dried mushrooms in a small heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and leave for 10-15 minutes. Drain and chop.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a pan and cook the onion for 5 minutes. Add the fresh mushrooms and cook for 5-10 minutes, until any water has evaporated. Add the garlic and herbs and cook for 3 minutes. Tip into a bowl.
  3. Stir the rehydrated mushrooms, lentils, cheese, mustard and walnuts into the mushroom mixture and season to taste. In a food processor, whizz half the mixture to a purée, then combine with the rest of the mixture and the flour. Shape into 4 patties and chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a nonstick griddle or frying pan to medium, brush the patties with the remaining oil and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. Reduce the heat to low and cook the burgers for a further 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the broad beans and petits pois and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and run under cold water. Remove the skin from the broad beans, then chop roughly with the peas. Mix both with the feta and yogurt.
  6. To serve, fill the buns with the lettuce and tomatoes, followed by the mushroom patties, the broad bean salad, cress and the bun top.
