Basic Lentil Patties - Create your own flavour!!!

I love love love having bean patties. Any kind, any flavour. I just love them.
My husband on the other hand is not a fan at all.
These ones however, he tolerates!

You'll need:
2 tins lentils
1/4 cup besan flour  (chickpea flour)
1 teaspoon mixed italian herbs
2 Tablespoons tomato paste

Drain the lentils and mash them well.
Stir in the other ingredients.
Shape into patties and bake at 200C for 20-25minutes until browned, turning half way through cooking.

These patties are really versatile. Not only are they really quick & easy to make but you can use this mixture as a base and add other veggies or spices as you desire.

Optional extras (pending husbands approval):

Chopped mushrooms, spinach pieces, onion, garlic, capsicum.
Using BBQ sauce or curry paste in place of the tomato works really well too & creates a slightly different flavour for these patties.

Great on burgers, added to salads or by themselves.

  1. I like how these could easily be adapted to what you have on hand and to taste :-)

    1. Thanks - Sure makes them very versatile :-)

  2. My family are huge fans of bean burgers, but I've yet to try them with lentil patties. They sound so easy and simple to make. I love how they turn out too. They look really firm and not crumbly at all. They're definitely going on my 'to try' list! Thank you! xx

    1. Very welcome! I hope you guys enjoy lentils burgers too! They are definitely firm & don't fall apart easily - great for bbqing for that reason :-) xxx
