Lentils are so healthy for us. They are packed with protein and many minerals and vitamins that are so important for our bodies. Nowadays you can find a variety of lentils, such as red, green, black, etc. In this recipe I personally used green. These ones work best! I love to eat them in this form of patties because you can't even notice that you are eating legumes. After all, lentils are extremely nutritious and very affordable to buy.

I have been loving lentils lately because its cooking time is really short. You can cook them completely in 20 mins, which is awesome. Just dont forget to soak them first at least for 1 hour before cooking. By doing that you can easily digest them.

This recipe is amazing. I personally love the combination of crunchy patties with different spices. In this recipe, I added smoked paprika which worked phenomenally. And dont worry these patties are not crumbly at all. Due to lentils, they stick together perfectly. I also added shredded carrot which makes them so moist! Serve them with mashed potatoes, fresh salad or even into a soft buns, like a burgers.
