Lentil nut loaf or patties recipe
2 cups cooked lentils – drained
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp sage
Cooking the lentils - Cook on a stovetop, using 3 cups of liquid (water, stock, etc) to 1 cup of dry lentils. Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will double or triple in size. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat and simmer until they are tender. For whole lentils, cook time is typically 15-20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients. If making the loaf, grease loaf pan with oil. Bake in oven for 45 – 50 minutes, or until browned on top.
Let cool before cutting into slices.
Pair with a starch such as rice, quinoa, or amaranth to have a complete protein.
