Easy Peasy Lentil Cheesey Burgers

This is a recipe I have modified from the recipe book "How it all Vegan" by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. I made sweet potato fries as a side. 
Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 2 cups cooked or canned lentils
  • 1 cup vegan bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 3 tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 slices of vegan mozzarella cheese (optional)
Directions:

Combine all ingredients, except for 2 tablespoons of the flax seeds, in a small bowl. Divide and shape into 4 burger patties. Coat each patty with the remaining flax seeds. 

Cook on a lightly oiled frying pan on medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes, flipping occasionally. When burgers are almost done, top with a slice of cheese. Cover the frying pan with a lid for about 2 minutes, or until cheese has softened. Serve on a vegan burger bun with desired condiments (ketchup- duh) :)
