I somehow stumbled across the gorgeous blog recently Veggie numnum, and this recipe for Lentil Patties immediately took my fancy!
What a gorgeous blog it is with vegetarian recipes sure to inspire any food lover.
Firstly chickpeas, red onion, mint, and fresh dates are pureed before folding in spices of ground cumin, sweet paprika and some oregano.
Cooked and cooled lentils are then folded through and the patties rolled into balls.
The patties are then cooked off with a little oil in a frypan.
Meanwhile prepare the sauce by blending chilli, tomato, cooked apple, cumin seeds, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, pinch of sugar and olive oil.
I served the patties on some wholemeal wraps with fresh cucumber and drizzled with the sauce.
It was delicious, the patties were soft and very tasty. An ever so slight sweetness from the dates and a touch of flavour from the spices.
The sauce was so fresh tasting and really balanced the dish well.
An excellent recipe, I encourage you to check it out over at Veggienumnum.
