Lentil Patties with Yogurt Sauce

Since you need only 1/4 cup of cooked rice for the patties, we suggest using a microwavable pouch of precooked rice. Measure out 1/4 cup and add it to the lentil mixture. Save the rest of the rice for another use. You can also use brown rice instead of white, if you prefer.


4 servings (serving size: 2 patties and 1/4 cup sauce)

Place lentils and 4 cups water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain well.

Combine breadcrumbs and next 5 ingredients in a food processor; process until blended. Add lentils, rice, 1 tablespoon oil, and egg whites; process until coarsely chopped.

Divide mixture into 8 (1/4-cup) portions, and shape each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.

Heat remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Serve with Yogurt Sauce.
