4 large eggs
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 onion, chopped
1 c. toasted fine gluten-free bread crumbs
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3/4 - 1 c. fine ground gluten-free oats (if using a different type of lentil other than black)
thyme to taste
Can also add: 1 - 2 medium carrots (fine shredded), 1/2 tsp. pepper
Combine lentils, eggs, and salt in a food processor. Blend until it has a hummus consistency. Stir in onion. Add bread crumbs and mix well. Let mixture sit for a few minutes.
Heat oil in skillet over medium to low heat. Add 4 patties (depending on pan size), cover and cook for 7 - 10 minutes until golden brown. Flip and cook other side for 7 minutes.
