Lentil meat

It may sound, and it sounds, quite strange, but it is a Colombian recipe that has great success. When you try it, you will realize that it is one more trick to avoid this rampant crisis that plagues us.

It is served as if it were meatWhat's more, you can ask diners what meat they are eating, to see what they tell you.

And if you liked it ... try these lentils with mushrooms, a spoon dish that we can enjoy at any time of the year.

Lentil meat
A very healthy Colombian recipe.
Author
Kitchen: Traditional
Recipe type: Starters
Ingredients
  • 250 lentils gr
  • Big or long onion, paprika, celery, garlic, bay leaves and thyme
  • Bread crumbs or toasted or grated draft
  • 1 egg
  • 1 sausage-flavored beef broth cube
Preparation
  1. We soak the lentils and cook them or buy them already cooked, to suit the consumer.
  2. Once cooked we drain them.
  3. In a pan we will put a little olive oil and we will fry the onion until it is transparent.
  4. Add the garlic, celery, paprika, bay leaf, thyme and the meat stock cube. We move well and we combine all the flavors.
  5. We will put the lentils in a glass of the blender or the mincer, with the stir-fry of vegetables.
  6. We must obtain a rather dry puree.
  7. We will transfer this mixture to another bowl and add beaten egg, salt and the breadcrumbs. We will stir well as if we were making meatballs. You can add a little oil to make the result juicier.
  8. We will give it the shape we want, the best results are given in the shape of a more or less fine fillet. We will add oil and fry well.

    In Colombia we did not invent it because of the scarcity, we consider it a substitute for meat for those of us who prefer not to consume animal protein.

      Excellent that you have taken the time to share the recipe and I congratulate you, however I have a suggestion regarding (It may sound, and it sounds, quite strange, but this recipe is Colombian), for the next post you make ... when taking one Recipe from any country, avoid placing its capacity in gastronomic contributions in between ... we have great wealth in South America and each of its countries; With their own contributions to our region, we do not need to continue separating and placing labels, nothing more pleasant than feeling united to the environment of a table than good food ... and for those who check post and sites with recipes, how excellent it is to see recognition without barriers or labels to the gastronomy of the world.
