High In Healthy Protein And Energy, A Great Go-To Burger Mix For Those Who Are On The Go.
By: Rowanna Watson

My lentil kale burger is great for those with gout, as lentils are low in purine, with the fresh parsley adding a delicious summery flavour.

This is a great, original vegan burger option; don’t feel like you have to be left out!



  • Smoked paprika 4g
  • Ground linseed 20g
  • Fresh kale 100g
  • Fresh minced garlic 5g
  • Water 500ml
  • Salt 2.5g
  • Walnuts, finely chopped 30g
  • Brown lentils, dried  150ml
  • Nutritional yeast 15g
  • Dijon mustard 4g
  • Fresh parsley 50g
  • White onion 55g
  • Black pepper 1.4g



  • Romaine lettuce, 1 leaf 5g
  • Soft brown rolls, 4 56g
  • Beef tomato, 1 slice  20ml 

Cooking Method

Step 1

Start by mincing the garlic and dicing half an onion.

Step 2

Add the lentils, water, garlic and onion to a pot and simmer for 45 minutes, or until the lentils are soft.

Step 3

Use a grinder/mortar and pestle to grind the linseeds and set aside.

Step 4

Wash and de-stem the kale. Then finely chop in a food processor. Add the parsley bunch and pulse until the greens are finely chopped.

Step 5

Strain the lentils once they are done.

Step 6

Place the lentils back into the pot and add in the ground linseed, kale, paprika, walnuts, salt, pepper, mustard and parsley. Mix thoroughly.

Step 7 

Mash all the ingredients together with a potato masher.

Step 8

Squeeze any excess water out with your hands. Then shape patties about 10 cm diameter and 1.5 cm thick. (The thicker the burger, the better it stays in shape.)

Step 9

Grill or fry the burgers for a few minutes on each side until cooked. Serve with salad or on a wholegrain burger bun.

What Its Good For

Lentils are a source of protein and low in fat. They are also low in purines (uric acid) which is really useful for those with gout.


Linseed is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to have heart-healthy effects


Parsley is great for preventing bad breath, boosting your immune system and stimulating digestion. A real herby powerhouse!
