Where do you get your protein? A Protein Packed Burger

We love burgers, especially when they are gluten-free, oil-free, and protein packed. I finally decided to give lentils a try again (they have been hurting my stomach for a while) and everything was A-OK with this burger! If you're in the mood for a savoury, satisfying, and really filling burger please try this one out and let us know your thoughts!
