A quick and easy go-to when you need a satisfying lunch or dinner made STAT. Can play with a mix of ingredients, spices or flours. The only requirement is that you can't be afraid to get your hands dirty!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced into very small pieces
  • 1 red bell peppers, finely diced into very small pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, finely diced into very small pieces
  • 4 Tbsps psyllium husks or ground flaxseed
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • ½ cup chickpea flour
  • ¼c parsley, chopped
  • 2 tsps paprika
  • 2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • himalayan pink salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, for frying
Instructions
  1. Add measured out lentils into a small pot and cover with 1½c water.
  2. Put on high heat, and bring to a boil.
  3. Once you bring the lentils to a boil, lower to medium heat and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. While lentils are cooking, finely dice the onions and peppers.
  5. After cooking the lentils for 15mins, remove from heat and immediately strain the excess water.
  6. Be sure to strain the lentils well! Once strained put them into a large bowl and start mashing.
  7. Add the remainder of the ingredients to the boil, except for the coconut oil.
  8. Mix all the ingredients together until you're left with a sticky, combinable texture. If the mixture doesn't shape well, you can always add more flour, or let it set in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Once you've shaped the patties, add the coconut oil to a non-stick pan and let it fry for about 2 minutes per side.
Notes
Serve on top of a bed of arugula, with freshly squeezed lemon. Can also add into collard greens, and eaten as a wrap! 🙂 Enjoy! X
