2 -3 slices whole grain bread, broken into small pieces
to taste ground pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil
Boil 4 or 5 cups of water in a saucepan. Put in lentils, carrot, onion, and celery, bring to a boil, and simmer, partially covered, until lentils are cooked, about 20- 30 minutes. Drain.
Peel and mash cooked sweet potatoes. Add maple syrup and mix. Put in drained lentil mixture and bread pieces, and ground pepper to taste, and mix well.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. With your hands, make patties from the mixture and cook until browned, a few minutes on each side.
This recipe is pretty flexible – you can throw in more vegetables if you want. I like to add some frozen spinach.
It’s a nice vegetarian/vegan main dish.
I have only made it with wheat bread, but I think any kind would work. I like to use heels.
If avoiding sesame, verify bread ingredients.
