Lentil Rissoles (Green Patties)
1 cup green lentils
1/2 finely chopped onion
Bread crumbs and/or flour
1/4 cup finely chopped spinach (optional)
finely chopped parsley sprig
dash of black pepper to taste
dash of kosher salt to taste
dash of cumin
olive oil for frying
I picked up this recipe many years ago in Australia.
Cook the lentils in water until soft and mushy. Add all the other ingredients. Add breadcrumbs until mixture is somewhat stiff and can be formed into patties.
After forming into patties, coat with either breadcrumbs, matzo meal, flour or any combination.
Fry in oil until browned on both sides. They are good either hot or cold.
