The best aspect of the Vegan Lentil Hamburger dish– besides its taste, undoubtedly– is that you need just four components to make the patties: lentils, raisins, walnuts, and gluten free bread crumbs.

A combination of more earthy tastes (lentil) with a touch of sweet taste from the raisins and, of course, the nuttily walnut part.

Here this is matched by the special Mustard Sauce with Maple: once again a mix of spicy and sweet.

However that sauce is not simply amazing as a topping for the Vegan Lentil Burger. I likewise advise including about 2 tablespoons of that sauce to the burger patty mix for an extra taste kick.
