Lentil Patties

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by VegeMight

An easy, tasty recipe to serve with fresh salad... great for vege burgers too (especially with my Charged-Up Chilli as sauce! :) This is from the Australian Women's Weekly 'Great Vegetarian Food' cookbook. Serves four if made as patties and served with salad or veges; or makes about eight patties for burgers. Great for OAMC... This recipe has many possibilities - I usually add more spices than the recipe calls for; but it depends on your taste!

I have this exact recipe only it is served with a mint sauce: 1/2 cup plain yoghurt 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped 1 (small) garlic clove, mashed 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Try it, it makes all the difference. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars.
