These are really yummy and very filling. Can be used as an appetizer, or a main course for a vegetarian meal.


  • 1 540 ml/19oz can lentils, drained
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1-2 large cloves garlic, minced fine
  • ½ small or ⅓ large red bell pepper, chopped fine
  • ½ small or ⅓ large yellow or orange bell pepper, chopped fine
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • salt and lots of fresh-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup flour
  • extra-virgin olive oil

Mix all ingredients except flour thoroughly. Add flour and mix well. Cover bottom of non-stick frying pan with generous amount of olive oil and heat over medium heat.

To form patties, place heaped tablespoon of mixture on the flat side of a wooden spoon or spatula, press down, and slide into frying pan. Fry until well-browned on one side and patty holds together when turned over. Turn over and fry until browned on other side. Serve warm.
