Experimenting and Liking it!

DSC_9561Quinoa Salad and Lentil Patties

Inspiration come from so many places and great people… it’s contagious. I’ve been wanting to prepare some lentil patties for a while. Inspired by Lea Michele, an actress from the TV show Glee, and author of the book Brunette Ambition where she has a wonderful Lentil Burger, I started my cooking journey. I added my twist and enjoyed it with a delicious quinoa salad.

1. Cooked the lentils for 45 minutes

2. Sauté in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil carrots, celery, garlic, onion and mushrooms   DSC_9540   3. Add the lentils and the sauteed veggies into the blender DSC_9542 4. Add 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and blend altogether

5. You will have a paste like mixture 6. Place the mixture on parchment paper or cover the pan with cooking spray and place in the oven 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remember to check since not all ovens are the same. Wait until the patty is  crispy on the outside. DSC_9557     Quinoa Salad:
