Today’s recipe is magic.
So easy to make – basic recipe with only 3 ingredients.
Healthy, green, vegan, customizable, you can make a big quantity at one time and then put it in your freezer to save it for later, I’m talking about… THE vegan lentil patties !
When I started to reduce my meat consumption, I have to admit that I was kind of “oh but my favorite meals are with meat”, yes I’m definately a hamburger/pizza-girl. I could eat both everyday, but it would not be very good for my waist !
Anyway, I think one of the most healthy dish I realized when I become – almost- vegetarian was a veggie-burger. I found on internet some recipes with lentils, eggs, flour but once I tried with all the non-necessary ingredients and I came up with this SUPER-EASY-3-INGREDIENTS recipe.
Vegan Lentil Patties:
For 5 patties :
- 200gr of non-cooked lentils (= approx. one glass)
- 1/4 onion
- 1tab of bio veggie broth (if homemade, it’s always better)
- 4 glasses of water
1/ Cook the lentils for 15/20min a big pot with the water and the broth.
2/ Cut the onion in small pieces, put it in the food processor.
3/ Set appart the water from the lentils, and put the lentils in food processor.
4/ Mix everything for a moment. Use a spoon the mix everything and mix again. You can add a little amount of water on the food processor to make the lentils a bit more smooth but the general texture must be compact and absolutely not fluid.
5/ Put baking paper on a oven plate. Take a ball of lentil in our hand, put it on the paper and make steak shape. You should have enough to make 5 patties.
6/ Put the plate in the non-pre-heaten oven for 20min at 200°C.
7/ Then make it grill for 3 to 5min depending on your oven, and you’re done!

You can eat these patties with hamburgers, or alone with veggies. If you want extra-crunchiness, you can bake them on a pan with oil, but it’s more fat !
You can freeze those patties or keep them in the fridge for a few days.
This is the base recipe. Feel free to add spices, garlic, mustard or anything else that you like!
