In skillet, toast cashews over medium-low heat until fragrant, about 5 minutes; transfer to food processor.

In same skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, chopped onion, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add to food processor.

Add lentils and curry paste to food processor; pulse until crumbly. Mix in bread crumbs and coriander. Shape into six 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick patties.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; fry patties until crusty, about 4 minutes per side. Top each with Gouda cheese slice; cover and cook until melted. Sandwich each patty, lettuce and red onion in bun.
