If you are a vegetarian you don’t have to give up from burgers. Veggie burgers can be as tasty as meat burgers and they are definitely nutritious. My veggie patty main ingredients are legumes, like lentils, peas, chickpeas or beans. In this recipe I made patty from lentils,  they are  a great source of veggie protein, fibre and also folate, vitamin B1 and even iron. Unlike beans and chickpeas, lentils don’t need soaking so you don’t need to be super organised to enjoy them. Lentils are easy to prepare, all you need to do is put them into a pot of boiling water and let them simmer until they aren’t crunchy any more. Then drain and season and they’re good to go. The only trick is to remember that they turn to mush when overcooked so it’s important to start testing early and keep an eye on them, it’s always safe to read the boiling time from the package. In this recipe I took the easiest option ever, I bought a can of lentils.

Ingredients (about 10 patties):

  • 1 can of lentils (or any other legumes like yellow peas for example)
  • 200 grams of cabbage
  • 1 teaspoon curry
  • 1 glove of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 200 grams of  flour (wholegrain, buckwheat or chickpea, whatever suits for you)
  • salt

In a food processor mince cabbage, onion, garlic and finally add lentils. You can also use a hand blender to do that. Flavour the mixture with salt and curry. Finally add flour. Mix it.  Form patties from the mixture (look from the pictures below) and fry them in a pan, covered with oil, both sides about 2 minutes. You can use oven as well, but I find that patties will be more juicy with frying.

Use patties in a hamburger, between sandwich or as a side dish.

Tip: always keep in your kitchen package of lentils or a can of peas, beans or lentils.

Tip: recently I have added quinoa into my patties, it makes them really delicious!

Tip: you could use a can of lentils. But it’s better if you use cooked ones, then the cutlet will come more thicker and it’s easier to process with it.

Tip: before placing cutlet into the frying pan, make your hands wet and form the balls. Place them on the pan and even up the balls, so they will look like patties. If your hands are wet then the mixture won’t stuck in hands. How to make cutlet balls, see it from here:

Koostisosad

  • 1 konservpurk läätsesid või leotatud kollaseid hernepoolikuid
  • 200 grammi kapsast
  • 200 g jahu täistera-, tatra- või kikkerhernejahu
  • 1 küüslauguküüs purustatud
  • 1 sibul
  • 1 tl karri pulbrit
  • 1 tl soola
  • veidi pipart
  • õli praadimiseks

Juhised

  1. Lisa köögikombaini kõik koostisosad välja arvatud jahu. Purusta segu, kuid ära liialt peeneks haki, jäta veidi ka midagi hamba alla krõmpsuma. Kui segu on enam vähem ühtlane, siis sega hulka jahu. 
    Köögikombainiga saab selle kõige kiiremini tehtud, aga kui sul köögikombaini pole, siis sobib ka saumikser. Kui kasutad saumiksrit või blenderit, siis kasuta seda vaid kaunviljade püreestamiseks. Kui vaja lisa juurde vett, et mass paremini purustuks. Kapsas haki noaga võimalikult peeneks. 

  2. Vormi segust pallid ning seejärel patsuta nad pätsikesteks, vaata üleval olevaid fotosid. Kasta käed enne vette, enne kui hakkad vorpima, siis ei jää segu käte külge.
    Prae kuumal õliga kaetud pannil.

Tähelepanekud

Hoia alati kapis purk konservkaunvilju, taimsete kotlettide jaoks on kõige paremad läätsed või kollased hernepoolikud. 

Kui kasutad kuivatatud kollaseid herneid, siis kasuta hernepoolikuid ning pane nad ööseks likku. Kotlettide tegemiseks ei ole vaja neid enam keeta, piisab leotamisest. Kui kasutad kuivatatud läätsesid, siis keeda neid 10 minutit enne kui teed kotlette, leotada üleöö pole vaja.

Viimasel ajal olen lisanud oma kotlettidesse ka quinoad, see teeb nad eriti mahlaseks ja mõnusaks. Selleks keeda quinoa enne ära ja sega segusse nagu jahu. Ära blenderda.
