Lentil Burgers
This vegetarian burger is low in calories but high in flavor! A dill and cucumber sauce tops a hearty lentil- and mushroom-based patty.

1 can (about 14 ounces) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup dried lentils, sorted and rinsed
1 small carrot, grated
1/4 cup coarsely chopped mushrooms
1 egg
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Nonstick cooking spray
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1/4 cup chopped seeded cucumber
1/2 teaspoon dried mint
1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash hot pepper sauce (optional)
Kaiser rolls

Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 Lentil Burger with about 1 tablespoon sauce (without roll)

1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Stir in lentils; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, about 30 minutes or until lentils are tender and liquid is absorbed. Cool to room temperature.

2. Place lentils, carrot and mushrooms in food processor or blender; process until finely chopped but not smooth. (Some whole lentils should still be visible.) Stir in egg, bread crumbs, onion, garlic and thyme. Refrigerate, covered, 2 to 3 hours.

3. Shape lentil mixture into four (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Cook patties over medium-low heat about 10 minutes or until browned on both sides.

4. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine yogurt, cucumber, mint, dill, black pepper, salt and hot pepper sauce, if desired, in small bowl. Serve sauce over burgers.
