Spiced Green Lentil Sandwich Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 cup green lentils
1 small potato, to equal about ½ cup mashed potato
½ cup chopped onion
1 carrot, finely chopped in a processor
¾ cup old-fashioned oats
½ cup pepitas or sunflower seed kernels
1 tablespoon hempseed, toasted in shell
1 cup breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons tamari
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1½ teaspoons smoked paprika
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon coconut oil
8 sandwich buns
1Place 2 cups water and the lentils in a large saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down to low and cook for 20 minutes. Drain off remaining liquid from the lentils, if any. Set the lentils aside.
2Pierce the potato a couple of times with a sharp knife. Wrap in a damp paper towel. Set in the microwave and cook on high for 4 minutes or until you can pinch the potato easily. Peel the potato and mash well. Set aside.
3Heat 2 tablespoons water in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
4Add the lentils, potato, onion, and the remainder of the ingredients to a large bowl (excluding the oil and the buns). Mix well. Form eight patties to the size of your sandwich buns.
5Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the lentil patties on each side without crowding.
6Spread the buns with all your favorite condiments and any other toppings of your choice.
7You may also freeze extra patties for future meals.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
