Luckily for me, Frugal in Derbyshire sent me a recipe for lentil burgers, which turned out to be the tastiest thing I've had all week!
50g split red lentils (I used 50g as I'm running low, but they would hold together better with 75g!)
300 ml stock
a small onion (mine are super small!)
10g baking fat (to fry)
Total cost = 26p (or 31p if you use 75g lentils).
How to (all credit to Frugal in Derbyshire):
- Boil the lentils in the stock until they're mushy, then remove from the heat and drain.
- Grate the carrot and finely chop the onion.
- Mix the lentils, carrot, onion and oats in a bowl
- Form the mixture into burger shapes (mine were about 1.5cm thick) and fry for around 3-4 minutes on each side.
These were some seriously nice burgers and made a great change from all the food-in-a-bowl I've been eating lately! Thanks for the recipe!
