These patties are incredibly versatile! You can use lentils, chick peas, pinto beans, black beans… whatever legume you like or have on hand! I like lentils the best, though.
They are very tasty, and they work well as a vegetarian protein side dish when you don’t want to eat meat for that meal. You can serve them with potatoes on the side and some veggies. They’re also great in a wrap with lettuce and veggies. They’re a light and tasty meal!
1 cup lentils boiled until soft
I small minced onion (I used a red onion this time)
1 minced clove of garlic
2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 cups dry oats
3 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic blend seasoning (or whatever seasoning you think sounds tasty in this!)
Mix all of the ingredients together except for the oats. Add those last. Stir it up, and then let it sit until the oats have absorbed the liquid. (About half an hour.)
Fry the patties in a pan with oil until they are browned on both sides. Put a lid on the pan while they cook so that they cook all the way through.
Now, I have a lot of allergies so can’t use dairy, but if you can, add some cottage cheese into the mixture before frying! They are really good that way!
Also, if you like zucchini, you can mince up some zucchini to go in these patties, as well, and that’s a very tasty addition to them.
I hope you enjoy your weekend, and if you fancy a light, vegetarian meal, maybe you’ll give these a try!
