Vegan Lentil Patties

I had given up making lentil meatballs or patties for a while, they always came out too soft, didn't hold their shape and had a strange consistency.

I found this recipe special because the lentils are hydrated, not boiled, and on this occasion the meatballs work very well, keep their shape and have a denser consistency. They taste just as good, served with a salad or in a sandwich are perfect.


1 cup
White onion
1 piece
Bread crumbs
3 tbsp
Garlic cloves
2 pieces
1 tsp
add to taste, optionally you can add half a teaspoon of oregano
Olive oil
50 ml

Step by step

Step 1

Put the lentils in a bowl and add water, about 1 liter.

Let it hydrate for 8-10 hours, preferably overnight. During this time it will triple in volume, so make sure there is plenty of water in the bowl.
