  1. 1 & 1/2 cups dry brown(green) lentils (or equivalent amount of canned lentils)
  2. water
  3. 6 table spoons seasame seeds
  4. 5 table spoons sunflower seeds
  5. olive oil
  6. 1 onion
  7. 2 cloves of garlic
  8. 1 chillie
  9. 2 teaspoons paprika
  10. 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  11. 1 teaspoon tumeric
  12. salt
  13. 1 carrot
  14. 1/2 a sweet potato
  15. a fist sized bit of broccoli
  16. a fist sized bit of cauliflower
  17. rolled oats (about 2 cups)
  18. 1/3 teaspoon cream of tartar
  19. 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
  20. 1 tablespoon corn flour (corn flour made from real corn, not wheat eg. whitewings)
  21. 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. boil lentils in 4 cups of water until they are soft. drain.
  2. toast the seasame seeds and sunflower seeds by putting them in the wok/frypan (WITH NO OIL) and stirring them continuously until they JUST start to turn goldern. tip onto a plate and set aside.
  3. chop or grate all the onion, garlic, chillie and veggies so they are in tiny pieces.
  4. heat a bit of oil in a large saucepan and add the onion, garlic, chillie and dried spices. fry for one minute.
  5. add chopped/grated veggies. stir well.
  6. add the drained lentils and 1/3 cup of water (new water, not lentil water).
  7. allow to cook with lid on, on low heat (so it doesn't burn) until the veggies are soft. stir every now an then.
  8. turn off heat. add oats. (add them gradually stirring before adding more so you see what the consistency is like). i used about 2 cups.
  9. add the seeds that you toasted earlier.
  10. add creame of tartar, baking soda, corn flour and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. (these ingredients are the "binder"). stir well.
  11. shape the mixture into patties with your hands (press/squeeze them firmly into shape with your hands) and then place them in a fry pan with a bit of olive oil or canola oil. flip over so they brown on both sides.
  12. serve with salad.

    serving suggestion: dip the patties into a little mixture of vinegar and seasame oil. delicious!
