The question you ask yourself after eating these super delicious vegan patties is: why people are still eating meat when there are such a yummy patties in this world??!!
These patties are also super healthy; packed with protein, iron and many other nutritional ‘goodies’.
Making them is not the easiest thing; it takes some time and effort, but it worth it!
What you need:
For the patties:
280 grams brown lentils, soaked for an hour
450 grams of soy ‘meat’
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 handful chopped parsley or coriander
2 chopped tomatoes
1 spoon all-spice
5 large spoons whole tahini
2 large spoons chickpea flour
Salt to taste
Canola oil for frying
For the tahini sauce:
4 large spoons of whole tahini
1 juice of a fresh lemon
1 chopped garlic cloves
salt to taste
200 ml water
What to do:
Use food processor to blend the tomatoes, then add the lentils. Next is the soy ‘meat’. Mix very well, until everything is nice and smooth, without any hard lentil inside.
In a large bowl, mix the other ingredients. When the lentils dough is ready, mix everything together.
Make nice little (or large!) patties and fry with canola oil in a large non-stick pan. Personally I like it when they are kind of ‘burned’ a bit; very dark.
For the sauce, it’s so simple: you blend all the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
Serve the patties in the sauce; you may add some red pepper for garnish.
