  • 1 GRILL DIRECTIONS: In medium saucepan, combine water and lentils. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5 minutes. Add rice, onion and salt; mix well. Cover; simmer an additional 15 to 18 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and lentils and rice are tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • 2 Heat grill. Stir 2 tablespoons of the pizza sauce and remaining ingredients into lentil mixture, mashing mixture slightly while mixing. Refrigerate 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. With wet hands, shape mixture into 6 patties, 1/2 inch thick.
