Number of Servings: 6


    1 cup dried green lentils, rinsed
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    3/4 cup diced yellow onion
    2 celery stalks, minced
    1/4 cup leeks, finely diced
    2 tbsp ground flaxseed
    5 tsp Dijon mustard
    3 tbsp unsalted tomato paste
    1 tsp chile powder
    1 tsp ground turmeric
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 cup cooked long-grain brown rice
    2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook lentils according to package directions.
In a large bowl, mix garlic, onion, celery, leeks, flaxseed, Dijon, tomato paste and spices. When lentils are cooked, mash them with the back of a fork, leaving some whole. Add mashed lentils and rice to bowl. Mix all ingredients together.
Heat oil in a medium saucepan on medium-high. While oil is heating, form lentil-rice mixture into 6 lentil patties. Add them to pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until light brown. Transfer patties to prepared baking sheet and cook in oven for 15 minutes to warm through. Serve with a side salad and topped with diced tomatoes and avocado, if desired.

  • I have used a recipe very similar to this using pinto beans for years. It was my grandmothers recipe and my sons still consider it a treat. We make beans just for the leftovers just for bean patties. you can leave out the rice and change the seasoning to suit your taste and mood. Try it!!!! - 11/18/11
