These are relatively simple to put together and I made them as directed except I didn't open a can of tomato paste for the 1 tablespoon, I used all V8 juice. They have a nice crisp outside and a very nice flavor. I rolled them in panko crumbs for the bread crumbs.
I preapared the recipe as described. I simplified the step of puree the lentils and pine nuts placing them in the bowl over the other ingredients and uning shortly the blender leaving the half "untouched".
I brushed the oil and placed them in the oven.
They came out very well and served with other dishes (especially a fresh raita) they made a wonderful impression.
Thanks a lot for these yummies!
