  1. Puree the lentils in a blender or food processor. Place in a medium-size bowl.
  2. Spread walnuts and crumbs in a shallow pan. Toast lightly in a hot oven (400 degrees F) about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir into lentils. Add eggs, onion, ketchup, cloves, salt and pepper. If mixture is very dry, add a little sour cream, if necessary.
  4. Shape into patties (1/2 cup each). Sauté in oil and butter until nicely browned, about 5 minutes per side.
