Lentil Patties with Roast Tomato Sauce

Low GI Lentil Patties with Roasted Tomatoes

I got this Low-GI Lentil Patties recipe off the internet about 5 years ago now. I know that I have posted a few “Bean Burger” recipes but I have a lot more too. These recipes are handy to have if you are vegetarian, vegan or know people who are. When entertaining it is more important these days to have choices available. Years ago you didn’t have to worry so much about preferences. These days people are on different diets for personal reasons and medical reasons. So this being the case you do have to think outside of the box when entertaining. Having said that, this recipe is Vegan Friendly.

Cashews for a Cashew and Lentil Patty

Cashew and Lentil Patties Recipe

Yes! Another Vegetarian Burger Recipe..This time it’s the Cashew and Lentil Burger Recipe. This recipe is a bit less complicated than some of the others. There are less ingredients, but I still tend to bowl up to make things quick and easier. Most of the work is done by the food processor so it’s not that laborious. These are great for something different to try as a family any night of the week. Otherwise they provide a nice healthy alternative at gatherings suiting both Vegetarians and the health conscious. Even if the idea of a Lentil Burger has never attracted you before, you have to try some of these burger recipes. Who knows, you might like them! Enjoy..

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 slices wholegrain bread, crusts removed
250g unsalted cashews
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup chopped coriander
3 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
salt and pepper
400g can brown lentils, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup (95g) Greek style yoghurt

Method

Place the bread in a food processor and process until coarsely chopped. Add the cashews, egg, coriander, 1 tablespoon of sweet chilli sauce, salt and pepper and process until well combined. Add the lentils and process until well combined.

Place the lentil mixture in a bowl. With damp hands divide the mixture into 8 portions. Roll and flatten each portion into a patty shape. Place on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the patties in batches for 4 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

While the patties are cooking, combine 2 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce and yoghurt.

Place the patties on serving plates. Serve with the sauce and a simple salad.

Hints

These patties would also be suitable for putting in a wrap with the chilli sauce and salad
Great in buns with salad or coleslaw
Can be reheated and eaten the next day
Great for lunch boxes
Sneak in some carrot or zucchini for extra vitamins or for the kids
Roll some smaller patties for parties or the kids and use the sauce as a dipping sauce
