SWEET POTATO, LENTILS & PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS PATTY
Hello there! Like many of you, I am just trying to catch the last remnants of summer, and despite the fact that I did not have too many choices in the fridge, I was able to combine leftover lentils, half of a baked sweet potato, and some Portobello mushrooms that had been sautéed with lots of garlic, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, a little bit of Dijon mustard, olive oil and salt and pepper.
As a norm I am not a burger kind of person, but I decided to give it a try. I mashed/mixed the potato and lentils with a fork, then added some of the mushrooms and formed a couple of patties which I then placed in my Panini Press and voilà, the patties came out fantastic! To serve I added a dollop of coriander pesto and that gave the patties the zing I was anticipating.
I paired my veggie patty plate with spiralized zucchini and julienned red peppers, to which I added some olive oil and apple cider vinegar, with salt and pepper to taste.
The meal was successful and tasted pretty good for a leftover combo, with a dash of imagination!
Bon Appétit !
