Protein Power Lentils and Amaranth Patties

These amaranth patties are healthy, easy to make and delicious! You’ll love this vegan amaranth recipe with a crispy texture and perfect blend of flavors! They’re rich in proteins too!

I don’t know if you remember, but a few weeks ago I posted a photo on Facebook with my white beans and amaranth patties ready to go into the oven. I also promised you the recipe. Well, I won’t be able to show you the final photos because I was clumsy as usual. I took the tray out of the oven and I didn’t grab it right. I burned myself and all the patties fell on the floor. What a mess! They were not even ready yet! I barely managed to save 3 or 4 amaranth patties. I was so hungry I ate them all right away.

I liked amaranth so much that I decided to give it another try. This time, I combined it with red lentils and the result was this delicious, vegan amaranth patties recipe! This is a protein-rich vegan recipe, both amaranth and lentils being very high in proteins and other essential nutrients. So if you’re looking to cook a protein-rich meal, this is one recipe you should consider saving.

In case you haven’t heard about amaranth or didn’t cook/ate it so far, here’s something you should know about this amazing cereal.

Protein-Rich Lentil Amaranth Patties


Amaranth is an over 8000 years old gluten-free cereal. In Ancient Greece it was considered a sacred plant and a symbol of eternal youth. Starting with the ’70s, its amazing health benefits have been rediscovered.

Amaranth can be named a super-cereal, as it is very rich in nutrients. It’s also known for its high concentration of proteins, vitamins, essential amino acids and minerals.

Amaranth also lowers cholesterol levels and has amazing anti-cancer properties.
