Recipe by Hazel and Cacao
1Cook lentils according to package directions in water with a little dry veggie stock
2Cook brown rice according to package directions
3Finely chop your onion
4Trim and grate your carrot and zucchini
5Fry off your onion in a little sunflower oil until lightly browned then add your grated carrot and zucchini and cook for 5 - 10 minutes on medium heat until the veggies have softened. You can add a TBSP of water to help.
6In a large bowl combine your cooked brown rice, cooked lentils, cooked veggie mixture, bread crumbs and mixed seasoning.
7Season with lots of salt and pepper
8Mix well until well combined and start to form your patties. I form large balls and then flatten them slightly in between my palms. You can make them any size you want but I would keep them small to medium and the larger ones do not hold together as well.
9Coat in extra bread crumbs on each side
10Place your patties in a baking tray greased with a little sunflower oil. Brush each patty with a little sunflower oil or alternatively use an oil spray
11Bake at 200 C for about 20 - 30 minutes
12You can also fry your patties for about 30 seconds on each side in a little oil, they soak up lots more oil this way but both versions are delicious
