Hemp Burgers

These baby burgers taste better than you can imagine! Actually when I took a sample of these to my friend who is Vegetarian Chef at a Vancouver Restaurant, he loved them so much that he added them to his menu! He also helped me create this awesome Hemp Mayo  that really compliments these savory slingers. One secret I use is to sprout the lentils for 2 days before I used them, then gently steam and cool them before adding them to the mix. I have also tried using wild rice vs Quinoa, which needed a little extra help in the binding area.  Adding a little extra cayenne and cumin really brings it home.
