1 1/2
cups water
1
cup dried lentils (8 oz) sorted, rinsed
1/4
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup unseasoned bread crumbs
2
teaspoons salt-free southwestern chipotle seasoning
1
can (11 oz) vacuum-packed whole-kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
2
eggs, slightly beaten
1
tablespoon canola oil
6
lettuce leaves
6
round 100% whole wheat thin sandwich rolls (4 inch)
3
tablespoons light mayonnaise
6
tomato slices
6
thin onion slices
  1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat water, lentils and salt to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender yet hold their shape; drain. Spoon into large bowl, cool 15 minutes.
  2. Into cooled lentils, lightly stir bread crumbs, seasoning, corn, and eggs. Form mixture into 6 patties about 1/2 inch thick and about 3 1/2 to 4 inches in diameter; place on platter or cookie sheet. Refrigerate 30 minutes (patties will firm up, making them easier to cook without falling apart.)
  3. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Cook 3 patties 6 to 8 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until golden brown. Transfer from skillet to heatproof platter; cover and keep warm. Repeat with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and patties.
  4. Place lettuce leaf on bottom half of each roll; top with cooked patty. Spread each with 1 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise over patty; top with 1 slice tomato, 1 slice onion, and roll top.

Diabetes Team Tip
To reduce fat, calories and cholesterol, eat meatless meals often; aim for one or two times per week. Continue to count carbohydrates, as meatless meals often provide more carbohydrates than meat-based meals. — Diane Reader, Dietitian
Betty's Success Tip
If you can’t find salt-free southwestern chipotle seasoning, substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons salt-free Mexican seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon chipotle seasoning instead.
