Vegan red lentil fritters

Learn how to make a delicious plant-based dish – vegan red lentil fritters.

Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the exercises. Remember you can read the transcript at any time.



Today we're making red lentil fritters. And they're super simple, really nice plant protein and perfect for making, like, a big batch having on the weekend and then using for your lunch boxes and things like that. They're just really, really, really delicious, um, and so we're gonna get started. 

The first thing that I'm gonna do is cook the red lentils and then once they're done just drain them and place them to one side. And you start by grating my carrots. I'm gonna be a bit lazy today and skip the peeling step. Definitely peel them if you'd like to.

I'm gonna chop up my red onion and my garlic. You want to chop them really nice and small though because they are gonna be mixed throughout, so you don't want massive chunks of garlic or onion or anything. Add those to the bowl as well. Then we're gonna add our gram flour, which is our chickpea flour, cayenne pepper, our paprika, a tablespoon of melted coconut oil, um, all of your red lentils and a really generous just kind of pinch or a couple of pinches of salt. And then give it a really nice stir so it creates a kind of good sticky mix and then we're just going to leave that to one side to let that set. And then once that's set, I'm gonna scoop out a large spoonful of the mixture and just use my hands to make them into patties, so we should make about 12 from this. And then heat a little bit more coconut oil in a big frying pan. Once that's hot, place a couple of fritters in the pan and cook them for like five to ten minutes or so on each side until they're golden on the outside and cooked all the way through.

This recipe looks quite easily to make. However,I don't cook often, for some reason I'm quite scared of it. Maybe someday when I'll heal my relationship with food and get into cooking again I'll try it out someday.

Yes, I must defitnely try this recipe because almost time I enjoy cooking and eating healthy also I think the ingredent´s combination match perfectly. I like using spices when I cook due to I love the strong flavors, including different vegetables. Likewise the girl show us how we can experiment creating a savory plate using simple ingredients that all have in our frigde.
Finally I believe that Sometimes lentils can be boring but if you be creative and mixing them with other vegetables you will obtain a magic meal like this.

Yes, this is another way to eat and is a quite healthy food, and the best is easy to prepare, once in the morning when you wake up lazy hahaha. I like to cook it's a way for me to relax and express some ideas through food. I like preparing seafood, there are some dishes like ceviche and cazuela, the easier is ceviche and to this has different ways to prepare and depends on the country, the most famous way to prepare ceviche is from Peru but I am from Colombia and I could say that the most major difference between these recipes is that in Colombia people put ketchup into the ceviche.
