about 60 grams (½ c.) of flour of choice, I used some chickpea flour
200 grams (1 c.) of red lentils
1 medium onion, diced
2 bell peppers, I used one red and one yellow, chopped
1 small bunch of parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon spicy paprika
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
4 tablespoons psyllium husks, or one large egg
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
½ teaspoon chili flakes
oil, for frying
sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
How to make Spicy Vegan Lentil Cakes
Step 1: In a pot, add the lentils. Pour in enough water to cover the lentils. Allow them to boil for about 15 minutes, then take the pot off the heat.
Step 2: After straining the lentils, place them in a large bowl. Using a fork or a vertical blender, mash the lentils. Then, add the remaining ingredients except for the oil.
Step 3: Begin mixing everything until you have a sticky and easy-to-shape mixture. If the mixture ends up too wet, add more flour until it has a dough-like consistency. Or allow the mixture to rest in the fridge for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 4: Grease a non-stick pan with some oil. On the frying pan, put each patty and fry for about 2 minutes per side.
The lentil mixture can be refrigerated for up to 3 to 4 days. Make sure to cover the bowl with plastic foil.
