  1. 1 1/4 cup dry French lentils, rinsed (regular lentils will work too but don't have quite the same texture)
  2. 2 garlic scapes, sliced in 1/4" rounds
  3. 3 walking onions, peeled and sliced in 1/4" rounds
  4. 1/4 - 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  5. 1/2 cup walnuts in small pieces (you can pulse these first in the processor if necessary)
  6. 1 cup broccoli florets
  7. 1 - 2 eggs
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Olive oil for cooking
  1. Bring a quart saucepan 3/4 full of water to a boil.
  2. Lower heat to simmer and add lentils. Simmer for 20 minutes, until lentils are cooked but not mushy. Drain well.
  3. In food processor, place scapes and onions and one egg.
  4. Pulse a few times to mix.
  5. Add broccoli, cooked, drained lentils, walnuts, and 1/4 cup bread crumbs.
  6. Pulse until mixed. Now check the consistency.
  7. The mixture should form firm patties that stick together.
  8. If it's too dry, add another egg. If it's too wet, add more bread crumbs.
  9. Heat olive oil in heavy pan over medium heat.
  10. Add patties and brown on first side, flip, then lower the heat, cover, and cook through, about 10 minutes.
  11. You can add cheese once you flip them if desired.
  12. Serve on whole wheat buns with a little tamari mixed into the mayo and some good farm lettuce.
