Vegan Fat Free Lentil & Corn Patties

"I found this recipe on The original recipe called for chickpeas but I changed it to lentils because I love lentils and corn. My family ate this up when we had it! I served it with Recipe #208857 (instead of mashed potatoes), green beans and vegan gravy. Also, I didn't use a food processor to blend this, I left it chunky."

  1. Used the recipe for veggie burger patties. I'm not vegan so I added an egg to the mix. I changed the lentil / corn ratio (2 cups of lentils, 1/2 cup corn) because I wanted lots of proteins. Added 1 garlic clove and I suggest to go easy on the thyme. Put the patties on a plate sprinkled with cornmeal and sprinkled more on top. Fried them in a little oil. Next time will try in the oven. Delicious!
  2. Pretty good recipe. It was late and I hadn't been grocery shopping for awhile, but fortunately I had everything needed for this. I mixed this up in my food processor and it was quite mushy, so I was a little concerned about the final product. I measured it out in 1/2 cup portions, spread that out a little on a baking sheet, then baked at 375 F for about 40 mins (20 mins. per side). It ended up making 5 patties and actually turned out rather well after baking! Served the patties with some sweet potato fries and vegan gravy (Recipe #244337).
  3. Fantastic recipe!
  4. This is excellent! I am not a vegan but recipes like this could make me want to be one! This is great just as written but next time I might add a bit more corn. Also, I feel like it could use a good sauce to accompany it but I cant put my finger on exactly what it should be. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them! Thanks Zenmaria! You have outdone yourself!
