On Wednesdays I take the children to our new play date at the park. This morning I was running late and did not have a lot of time to prepare lunch so I decided to make these quick lentil burgers.
1 cup cooked lentils
1 tsp of each of the following: dried oregano, marjoram, thyme, tumeric powder
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 cup quinoa flakes
2 tbsp cassava flour (optional. I just put it in because I had it)
2 tbsp water
Oil for frying
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until fully incorporated. Take some of the mixture in you hands and form into the size burgers you want . Shallow fry until they are golden brown.
I served these with fried plantain and steamed pumpkin and squash. Took me about 15 minutes tops to do lunch.
Then we had a splendid time in the fresh air at the park.
