Serves: 20 eggplant patties
Ingredients
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1 bunch parsley, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsps psyllium husks (or one large egg)
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • 4 Tbsps sliced black olives
  • 3 garlic cloves, mashed
  • breadcrumbs – about ⅓ 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.
  3. Cut the eggplant in half and scoop out the pulp. Chop it and put it in the bowl.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients, except oil.
  5. 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.
  6. Cook the patties – bake or light fry.
  7. Light fry: Spray a non-stick pan with some oil. Put each patty on the frying pan and let it fry about 2 minutes on each side.
