  1. Combine lentils, onion powder, egg whites, egg substitute, garlic powder, cumin, sage and Tabasco sauce in food processor or blender (you may need to divide this into two batches); process until smooth.
  2. Transfer mixture to medium bowl; add remaining ingredients and mix well. If mixture needs to be thickened, add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional cracker meal.
  3. Shape mixture into patties.
  4. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  5. Add patties and cook until browned, 6 to 7 minutes per side.
  6. Serve immediately or cool, wrap and freeze. Reheat grain burgers in microwave or oven (wrapped in foil). Serve on whole-grain rolls garnished with lettuce, tomatoes and sliced onions.
  • Along with a variety of soy products, lentils are an excellent source of flavonoids, antioxidants that may reduce the formation of artery-clogging plaque, reducing the risk of heart attack.
