  1. One and a half cups of dried red lentils

  5. 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce
  6. 1 teaspoon of salt

  8. Olive oil

What to do:

Step 1: Get the lentil mix ready.

  • Put the dried red lentils in a big bowl and add enough water to cover them. Soak them for about two hours.
  • After letting the lentils soak, use a fine mesh strainer to get rid of most of the water. Then, put the lentils in a food processor or blender.

  • Add the black pepper, salt, and tomato puree.
    Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and well mixed.

Step 2: Form the patties and fry them.

  • In a pan that doesn’t stick, heat the olive oil over medium to medium-high heat.
  • Take a scoop of the lentil mix and use your hands to form it into a ball.
  • Slowly put the patty into the hot oil.
  • Do it again, but this time make sure the pan isn’t too full.
  • Fry the patties until they are crispy, golden brown, and fully cooked on both sides.

Step 3: Serve and have fun!

  • Put the cooked lentil patties on a baking sheet lined with paper towels or parchment paper to drain off any extra oil.
  • Put the patties on a plate or dish and set your favorite dipping sauce next to them.
  • You can eat the tasty, high-protein lentil patties as a major dish, a snack, or an appetizer.
