An old recipe that was given to me years ago. These make an ideal vegetarian substitute for hamburger patties. Nice with a salad and mashed potatoes or use for hamburger filling.
- Boil lentils in pot of water until soft.
- Beat egg, add salt, thyme, turmeric and chopped onion.
- Add drained lentils, stir thoroughly and add sufficient breadcrumbs to make a fairly solid consistency.
- Shape into rissoles.
- Chill covered in fridge approximately 30 minutes.
- Heat oil. Fry until golden brown.
