Day 6 ~ Enjoy a GF Vegetarian Recipe!

number 6

It’s day 6 of the 10-day Countdown!! Love and the Hockey Heist is book 2 of the Laugh-out-Loud Hockey Caper Romance series. Dr. Piper Roblin is trying to take back what is rightfully hers – in the wrongfully worst way. Following the clues and falling in love…It’ll be live on June 12. Woohoo!

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a gluten-free vegetarian burger – delish!! Piper is vegetarian and is always looking for new recipes. Here’s a delicious burger which is high in fibre and protein. Serve on a gluten-free bun with cucumber slices, cilantro, and melted cheese. I like it with mustard, too.

Gluten-free Lentil Almond Burger

1 cup dried green lentils

227g cremini mushrooms, sliced

2 shallots, diced

2 Tbsp canola oil

1 Tbsp garam masala

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp ground cumin

½ tsp mustard powder

pinch salt

½ cup cilantro leaves

100g (approx. 1 cup) ground almonds

Add dry lentils to boiling water and let simmer for 15 minutes. Strain and add to food processor. In large non-stick skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil and fry mushrooms and shallots until soft, approx. 5 minutes. Stir in garam masala, garlic powder, cumin, mustard powder, and salt and stir for 2 minutes. Add to food processor along with the cilantro and almonds. Pulse until combined. Shape into 1 cm thick patties. Heat remaining oil in skillet and fry patties until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with gluten free buns. Enjoy!


Here’s a bit about Love and the Hockey Heist ~

Love and the Hockey Heist cover the clues and falling in love…

Dr. Piper Roblin is peeved. She’s pretty sure her new neighbour stole her travel alarm clock. It may not be worth much, but it has sentimental value. Piper hatches a plan to get it back, but her plan relies on Brent Dean, popular forward of the Brighton Edge hockey team, to finagle a dinner invitation to gain access to her neighbour’s house.

Brent thought the invite from the stunningly beautiful cardiologist was based on a thoughtful gesture to welcome new neighbours to Brighton. He didn’t realize the gig included subterfuge, thievery, and a fake engagement. But he didn’t get to where he is without a lot of hustle and determination, and since he’s always up for some fun, let the games begin.


Love and the Hidden Hockey Clues is up for pre-order. The big day is June 12! Can’t wait to share this story with you. Stayed tuned – tomorrow I’ll be highlighting the 5 symptoms of a heart attack that you shouldn’t ignore!
