Cover the Gem lentils in cold water and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes until soft.

Pop the Gem walnuts and seeds (I used a mix of sunflower, pumpkin, linseed & flax) into a food processor and roughly blitz. Pop these into a large mixing bowl.

Repeat with the carrot and add to the bowl.

Add the cooled lentils and the flour, mix until there is no trace of flour remaining.

Place these on a lined tray and chill for 30 minutes, this will help hold their shape once cooking.

Cook the burgers over medium heat for a minute or so on each side and you can then pop them into a preheated oven set at 180C for 10 minutes to cook all the way through.
