This recipe can be made vegan by substituting the butter with a vegan alternative and gluten-free by using gluten-free oats.
Bring the lentils to a boil with the water and vinegar, then lower to a simmer until the lentils are soft, about half an hour. Mash together. In a separate pan, sauté the onions, garlic, and celery with the butter for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms, sherry and walnuts. Sauté together until tender, about 10 -12 minutes. Turn off heat. Add spices and mix well. Combine with the lentils and then add in the breadcrumbs, wheat germ, oats, or flour. Let cool before forming into patties. To cook, either sauté patties until brown, or broil in oven about 5 minutes on each side.
