Easy, delicious, and hearty, these Sprouted Lentil Patties are a family-friendly and economical main dish. Even though they’re meat-free, they’re satisfying enough to please even my steak-loving husband!
Sprouted Lentil Patties are fabulous when topped with your favorite sauce, nestled between buns like a burger, or added atop a salad. They’re super versatile, and the neutral flavor of the patty really allows the topping to shine through. Sprouting the lentils first does take some planning, but the flavor and added nutrition are well worth the effort.
Lentils are my favorite legume to sprout. An overnight soak and a few minutes of rinsing and shaking over two or three days gives perfectly formed little tails and transforms those hard beans into a fully edible, raw vegetable. When making patties, I usually steam the sprouted lentils first to make them extra soft and mushy. This keeps me from needing to pull out the food processor.
Sprouting makes lentils more nutritious by neutralizing the phytic acid, an anti-nutrient, and increasing vitamins and minerals. Sprouted lentils are one of my favorite summertime dishes. I love to sprout a large amount and turn them into several meals over a series of days.
