  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise plant-based
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper fresh cracked

  • Pre-heat the grill to 350 degrees.
  • Boil the broth in a medium sized saucepan over high heat. Stir in the lentil's and 1 tsp of salt; reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until lentils are tender and water is absorbed. Once cooked allow to cool to room temperature.
  • In a small bowl combine the flax seed and the boiling water; set aside for about 10 minutes.

  • Shape lentil mixture into 4 (1/2 inch thick) patties. Grill for about 5-6 minutes on each side until browned on both sides.
  • Make the sauce by combining the mayonnaise, dill, remaining 1/4 tsp of salt, and black pepper. Serve burgers on the rolls with lettuce, tomato, and a couple of tablespoons of sauce. Enjoy!
