Friday Fixin’s: Curried Red Lentil Walnut Burger
As you know, I am ALWAYS on the look out for new recipes to satisfy my occasional meat cravings. My friend Melissa Costello’s curried red lentil walnut burger does just the trick! It’s very delicious and contains loads of fiber, healthy fats, and protein. AND it’s the perfect recipe for the 4th of July!!
I have also been trying to include more Lentils in my overall diet because they are just soooo good and soooo healthy! Lentils help reduce blood cholesterol due to its high levels of fiber, reduces your risk of heart disease, prevents constipation and other digestive disorders, stablizes blood sugar levels, increases energy, is a great source of protein, and helps with weight loss. Pretty fabulous, right?!? Enjoy!
