The last recipe I made from this book was so easy and delicious I figured that others would be too so I took a crack at another one. If you wanna check out the Black bean chili pizza I made, you can do so here. This time I made a burger pattie, but I didn't eat it like a burger with a bun and such.
Indian-Spiced Lentil Hemp Patties
2-3 tbsp coconut oil, for frying
1 cup diced yellow onion
1 stalk celery, minced
1 cup red pepper, diced
6 medium cloves garlic, minced
14 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 cup hemp seeds
3 tbsp sprouted flax powder or finely ground flax seeds
1 1/4 cup cooked red lentils
1/2 tsp sea salt
1. In a medium frying pan, heat 1 tbsp coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery and red pepper, and saute until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are soft. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl.
2. To the vegetable mixture, add the remaining ingredients and mix well, mashing the lentils with a fork. Adjust salt as needed. Hand-shape into 4-6 patties.
3. Heat the remaining coconut oil in a large frying pan over low heat. The lower the heat the better, as it will allow the patties to cook longer and get a better crust. Place the patties on the pan carefully and cook until brown underneath, about 10 minutes. Flip the patties over and repeat on the other side. Serve warm.
|Hemp seeds and ground flax seeds|
|All ready to go!|
NOTE: I did not have a red pepper in the house so I used a carrot and an extra stalk of celery. I also processed all the veggies in the food processor including the onions and fried them at the same time. I used NO oil, just water. I kept the heat at medium to prevent it from sticking. I also didn't have red lentils, so I subbed green lentils. THEN I didn't pan fry, but I baked them at 375 for 25 minutes on each side. (depends on size). I only sprayed a little Pam on it.
|Topped with spinach and my Tahini Dressing|
|Mmmm, patties, raisin chutney, roasted delicata squash, and kale|
|Delish meal for 2|
1 cup raisins
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp chili flakes
1/2 red onion
1/4 cup water
1 tsp fresh ginger
Put all ingredients in a food processor and processor until smooth-ish. I just pulsed till the raisins were no longer full raisins. Was for about a minute or so.
Also, cuz we're red wine whores, we picked up a bottle of wine to go with our afternoon lunch. Have you ever had this bottle before? Its a cheapo bottle, under 15 I think. But the reason I got it was because of the bottle. I loved the chili pepper on it. AND bonus, it was quite delish! I'll def get it again.
|Of course its empty.|
