Serves: 15 lentil patties
Ingredients
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1 bunch parsley, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsps psyllium husks (or one large egg)
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • ½ cup sliced black olives
  • breadcrumbs – about ⅔ cup, more or less
  • sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • oil, for frying
Instructions
  1. Add lentils in a pot and cover them with water. From the moment they start boiling, let them boil for about 15 minutes and then remove from heat.
  2. Strain the lentils very well and put them in a large bowl. Start mashing them a little, using a fork.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except oil.
  4. Using a fork, or your hands, start mixing the composition. It has to be sticky and easy to shape. If it’s not it means that you didn’t strain the lentils very good and the composition is too wet. No problem, just add more breadcrumbs until it has a dough-like consistency.
  5. Spray a non-stick pan with some oil. Not too much. Put each patty on the frying pan and let it fry about 2 minutes on each side.
Notes
You can bake them too. Grease a large pan and place the patties. Cook 15 minutes on one side and another 15 on the other, at 180C.
