Walnut recipe 1


¾ cup toasted walnuts
1/3 cup breadcrumbs (make them yourself in a
food processor from a nice bread)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
¼ to ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 400ml tin brown lentils
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large egg

In a food processor, combine walnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, cumin, coriander, chilli flakes, 1/3 of the lentils, oil, salt and pepper. Process until finely ground and combined. Add the remainder of the lentils and the egg. Roll into balls and flatten. Makes 5 x 100g patties. Cook in a pan with 1-2 tablespoons oil (I use coconut oil) for 4-5 minutes on each side, and I would pop them in a 180 degree Celsius oven for another 15 minutes as well to fully cook through.

Serve with salad veges and homemade chutney.
