Beluga Lentil Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

Beluga Lentil Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

“Everyone loves a good burger, but it is good to to not eat red meat too much, so these are a really good meat free alternative. They really look like burgers too because of the deep black lentils. The chilli mayonnaise is fun and spicy, I love Sriracha chilli sauce, but realistically you cans use whatever chilli you have at hand.”
