These Curry Spiced Lentil Burgers are one of 100+ plant-based, simple and easy recipes from The Plant Based Diet Meal Plan cookbook.

But, recipes are not all that fill the pages of this cookbook. There’s tons of information on the health benefits of a plant based diet, nutrition guides for those embarking on a plant based diet and tips and tricks on how to stock your kitchen while on a plant based diet. And, y’all, there’s even a 3-Week Plant Based Diet Meal Plan with shopping lists!

While my vegetarian years are behind me and I am not on a plant based diet currently, my daughter and I do embark on “Vegetarian Days.” When I was introduced to The Plant Based Diet Meal Plan cookbook, I figured I would give a few of the recipes a try on some of our vegetarian days.

This past Saturday, I chose to make these Curry Spiced Lentil Burgers and duplicated the recipe exactly except for adding in some ginger (what Windex was to Gus Portokalos, ginger has become to me). I also changed the quantity of flour – I only added a half cup of rice flour while the recipe suggested 3/4 cup. As the flour was a binding agent and I added less of it, my patties were a tad bit crumbly. But, they sure were easy to make and enjoy along with some Three Bean Curry (recipe will be coming up on the 23rd of May). On our upcoming vegetarian days I hope to try out the Black Bean Taco Salad Bowl, the Chocolate Quinoa Bowl and the Sweet Potato Patties!

Curry Spiced Lentil Burgers

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

A simple and easy, wholesome recipe from The Plant Based Diet Meal Plan Cookbook by Heather Nicholds.


  • 1 cup lentil
  • 3 carrots, grated
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tsps ginger grated
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh black pepper


  1. Place the lentils in a medium pot with the water and bring to a boil. Then, turn down and simmer for about 30 minutes until lentils are soft.
  2. While the lentils are boiling, add the carrots, onion, curry powder, rice flour, ginger, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix.
  3. When lentils have cooked, add them to the bowl with the carrots and flour mixture and, using A potato masher or your hands, mix well. 
  4. Scoop up handfuls or 1/4 cup portions and form into patties.
  5. You can bake these patties at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or pan fry them for about 10 minutes on each side. I pan fried them for about 5 minutes on each side and then popped them into a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Serve with hot sauce or ketchup of your choice.

Would you have a substitute for rice flour? I am getting quite a collection in the pantry and was hoping I might already have something which would work. I am relatively new to the plant based diet.

Wonderful recipe. It makes me miss when my husband was a vegetarian and I'd make him burgers with whatever I had on hand - canned beans, vegetables, leftovers.... They were always so good! And these sound wonderful.

These lentil burgers look great Shashi! I saw some of these awesome pics on Facebook and they reeled me in fast to your site this morning. Looks like a great informative book, and while we are not vegetarian, we do enjoy vegan recipes from time to time too. I like the idea of someone making my shopping list for me. Very appealing! Can't wait to hear about the chocolate quinoa bowl. Chocolate is a weakness of mine.... as if you didn't know that already. (!) I still want to try your chocolate soup. Have a fabulous week, FriYAY is coming!!! xoxo

We do eat meat, but often cook vegetarian or vegan. Just because we like it! Sounds like a great book. Certainly these lentil burgers looks terrific! Thanks.
