RECIPES: Lentil Burgers, Whole Wheat Better Batter Buns

Tomorrow is World Vegetarian Day and the official kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month in October.
In 1977, the first World Vegetarian Day was founded on Oct. 1 by the North American Vegetarian Society to bring awareness that what we eat as individuals impacts the well being of ourselves and others, as well as the animals and the planet.

According to the NAVS, there are many ways to join the vegetarian celebration. Try eating meat-free for tomorrow, learn more about the many health benefits associated with a vegetarian diet, order a meatless option at your favorite restaurant or host a meal or vegetarian potluck party at your home.

It has never been easier to eat vegetarian. There are hundreds of vegetarian entrée’s in your supermarket and health food stores. Frozen veggie burgers are a fun and delicious way to try a vegetarian meal. They are usually located near the frozen waffles in most supermarkets. There are dozens of varieties and each taste different. My family like MorningStar Farms Grillers, but my favorite is Garden Burger Originals.
There are also vegetarian chic patties, meat balls, hot dogs, roasts, lunch meats made from whole grains, beans and vegetables. If you are watching salt intake you may have to read labels because some of these frozen meatless ‘meats’ are high in sodium content.
My favorite vegetarian recipe is from my mother-in-law, Grace. Lentil Burgers are very easy to make and so inexpensive. I make a large batch and freeze burgers in individual packages in sealed plastic bags or foil. These can be warmed in the microwave or oven for a delicious burger in a flash. Break up burgers to add to casseroles, spaghetti sauce or top pizzas.
