Ingredients (9 servings):
1 cup of lentils - 20 min cooking 1/2
2 1/2 cups of Water
1/2 Onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Garlic, minced or crushed
1 shredded Carrot
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 / 2 tz of Bread Crumbs
Salt and Pepper to taste
Put clean uncooked lentils in 2 1/2 cups of water over medium heat for about 20 minutes or until soft. Once cooked, put them in a bowl and mash slightly. In pan fry onions, garlic and carrots with oil and season with salt and pepper. In bowl of lentils add onion and carrot (fried), soy sauce and salt and pepper to taste and mix well. Form balls, flatten and cover with bread crumbs. Then they are ready to fry or bake 15-20 minutes at 200° C or 400°F.
I have also used beans instead of lentils. Looks and taste great!
