  1. Pour the cool water into a small pot and add half a cup of red lentils. Over medium heat, bring to a boil. Allow it to simmer for 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. In a mixing bowl, mix onions, garlic, chickpeas, salt, and pepper. Add in the cooled lentil and flour and mash until firm.

  3. Form the mixture into patties, about the same length as the bagel and about a 1/2 inch tall. The mixture should yield about 7 to 8 patties.

  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place about 4 to 5 patties into the pan, or enough so they aren't touching. Cook until crispy on the surface, about 2 minutes per side.

  5. In the meanwhile, cook the bagels as instructed or prepare your onion roll.

  6. Assemble the burger with mayo and pickles, or any other toppings of choice.

We tried it with Beet Ketchup and Avocado Oil Mayo. The Mayo was the winner in the taste test.
