The base of these veggie burgers is made of the flavorful lentils and vegetables from the WW Hearty Lentil & Tomato Soup (search for it in the WW app). Be sure they’re well drained before mashing so they stay together better when formed into patties. If a patty starts to break when you turn it over, just push it back together with a spatula. After you place the patty on the bun and top it with the yogurt-feta sauce, you’ll never notice the cracks.


Hearty Lentil & Tomato Soup

2 cup(s), well drained (search for this recipe in the WW app)

Whole wheat panko breadcrumbs

½ cup(s)

Uncooked onion

¼ cup(s), chopped, or shallot, finely chopped

Ground cumin

1 tsp

Kosher salt

½ tsp, divided

Black pepper

½ tsp, divided


1 large egg(s), lightly beaten

Canola oil

1 Tbsp

Plain fat free Greek yogurt


Crumbled feta cheese

¼ cup(s)


1 tsp, chopped

Light whole wheat hamburger buns

4 item(s)


4 leaf/leaves, large


  1. Using a fork, in a large bowl, mash the drained lentils and vegetables until coarsely mashed. Stir in the panko, onion, cumin, ⅜ tsp each salt and black pepper, and egg. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium. Divide the lentil mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each into a 4-inch patty. Add the patties to the pan. Cook the patties, carefully flipping once, until firm and browned, 5 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir the yogurt, cheese, dill, and remaining ⅛ tsp each salt and black pepper. Spread about 1½ tbsp of the sauce on each bun top. Layer 1 lettuce leaf and 1 patty on each bun bottom. Top the burgers with the bun tops.
