This recipe is inspired by falafel—vegetarian balls or patties that are usually made from chickpeas. My version features similar ingredients, but the use of lentils as a substitute for chickpeas gives the patties a sturdier, almost meaty taste, which is why I like to serve them as I would burgers.
Topping a lentil patty with sautéed mushrooms, kale leaves, and a curried mayo results in a sandwich that is guaranteed to please everyone, even serious meat lovers.
