Ingredients Jump to Instructions ↓

  1. 8 oz Green lentils

  2. 3 Medium-sized carrots

  3. 3 sl Bread

  4. 1 Onion

  5. 1 Clove garlic

  6. 1 oz Or so parsley

  7. 1 Egg

  8. 20 minutes in water, drain, and mash gently - not too hard, as you want some of them to stay whole. While they are cooking, peel and grate the carrots, make the bread into crumbs, and finely chop the onion, parsley and garlic. Mix these and the seasoning with the mashed lentils, and bind together with egg. Form into burgers or rissoles or whatever you call the things, coat with flour - I still don't know if this is necessary - and cook under the grill (broiler) for 5 minutes each side. *Tomato sauce made like this:

  9. 1 onion

  10. 1 clove garlic

  11. 1 tbs tomato puree (paste)

  12. 1 tin tomatoes A little extra water Seasoning. Microwave onion and garlic for about 3 minutes; transfer to saucepan with the tomato puree, stir, add tinned tomatoes and a little water, season, bring to the boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. If it's a bit liquid, boil harder to reduce - get it to the sort of consistency you would like, bearing in mind you have brown rice to moisten!
