½ cup of almond flour

¼ cup of grated parmesan

¼ cup of chopped chives

Lentil Patties


Makes 10 patties


Lentils are one of the loveliest legumes and an absolute favourite of mine. Full of fibre, iron and a whole host of nutrients including folate, potassium and B1, they are a versatile ingredient and with a low calorie count and virtually fat free they are a Healthylicious winner.


With a Mediterranean flavour these lentil patties make a lovely appetizer with my walnut basil pesto.


Method:


  1. In a food processor add the lentils, basil, sun dried tomatoes, chives, garlic, tomato puree, oregano, turmeric, salt and pepper.
  2. Pulse until you have a roughly chopped mixture.
  3. Put the lentil mixture into a bowl and add the beaten egg, almond flour and parmesan.
  4. Gently mix all of the ingredients together.
  5. Divide the lentil mixture into 10 portions.
  6. Roll each one into a ball and then slightly flatten the top and bottom.
  7. Heat a frying pan to a medium high heat with enough oil to generously cover the bottom.
  8. Fry the patties in small batches for 2 minutes on each side.  
  9. Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
