My love affair with kale continues….as well as lentils and sweet potato.
Rich in protein, with all the benefits of kale and there’s also a major superseed punch.
Makes about 12 patties
3 cups of cooked sweet potato (cubes)
1 cup of cooked brown, red or green lentils (or a mix of all)
1 cup of rolled oats (divided)
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 cup of chopped kale
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup of hemp seeds
1/4 cup chopped coriander
2 TBSP chopped chives
Set oven to 200C
Line a baking sheet with baking paper
Add the potatoes, lentils, 1/2 cup of oats, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper to a food processor, pulse about 10 times, just to incorporate all the ingredients – don’t blend, you want to keep the mix chunky.
Transfer mix to a bowl and add remaining ingredients, stir to mix and incorporate.
Form patties and place on baking tray in rows.
I find that you just need to keep your hands moist with some water will rolling and shaping the patties. Just helps, as the mix gets a little sticky.
Bake the patties for about 30 minutes, flipping them at the half way mark.
Let them cool and serve them with a fresh salad, loads of guacamole or between two grilled field mushrooms as a vegetarian burger!
