Follow the steps in this recipe:


  • A cup of boiled lentils
  • One onion diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • Salt to taste


Step 1: Heat a splash of oil and add your diced onion and let it brown along with the minced or ground garlic for about 4 minutes, over low heat.

Step 2: Add the chopped mushrooms, if you decide to add them, otherwise you can easily ignore it and replace them, for example, with grated carrot, peas, spinach. Let it sauté a couple of minutes, to add the lentils and the breadcrumbs.

Step 3: Mix everything and leave it on very low heat for about 3 minutes and add salt to taste

Step 4: Transfer your preparation to a container, let it cool and assemble your croquettes, it can be in small balls or hamburger type.
