Lentil Patties

Well hey there👋🏼 hope your holiday season has been going great! This semester is finally over and there’s only one more to go!!! During the holiday season we often find ourselves surrounded by delicious, sugary things. Because of that, I like to eat a lot of vegetables with my meals. That’s why I loaded this recipe with lentils, celery, onion, spinach and parsley. It’s kinda a mix between an Indian and Middle Eastern lentil patty. It goes great with avocado and hummus all wrapped up in a lettuce leaf (aka more veggies😆)

Curried Lentil Patties

Ingredients:

1 cup lentils

1/2 tbsp ghee or other oil

1 small onion, diced

3 celery, chopped

1/2 tsp garam masala (Indian spice)

1/2 tsp curry

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp chili powder (more if you want it spicy, taste first)

Salt to taste

Parsley

2 handfuls spinach, sliced thin

1/4 cup arrowroot powder

Directions:

1. Cook the lentils according to the package

2. While cooking, add 1/2 tbsp oil of choice to a saucepan. Sauté the onion and celery until browned and cooked through

3. Add the onion and celery to a food processor, along with the spices and fresh parsley. Blend well

4. Preheat oven to 400F

5. Strain the lentils and add about 3/4 of them to the blender. Pulse about 5 times (you want the lentils to be in pieces not a mushy paste)

6. Add the rest of the lentils, spinach and arrowroot powder and stir together

7. Add ghee (or other oil) to a baking sheet. Using a spoon, scoop the mixture onto the baking sheet. Should get about 20-24 patties

8. Bake for 10-15 minutes then flip

9. Bake for another 10 minutes until browned
