Lentils are one my family favorite legume! They are a rich source of numerous essential nutrients, particularly dietary fiber and protein so I suggest you to eat them regularly.
This dish is vegetarian so it’s perfect for the meatless night.
My kids love them.
Ingredients for 15 balls:
- 500 grams lentils previously boiled
- 1 boiled potato
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 egg
- 2 spoons of Parmesan cheese
- 2 spoons of bread crumbs
- A sprinkle of love
Boil the potato, peel it, cut it in pieces and add it to the boiled lentils.
Mix everything and add the slice of bread that you previously soaked in milk.
Add the egg, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper and gently mix until everything is smooth.
Take a small amount of the dough and start to make your balls, you should be able to make 15 lentils balls.
Now put them in the fridge for 20 minutes until they are firm.
After that roll your ball in the breadcrumbs and fry them in a fry pan with 2 tablespoons of oil.
Voila your lentils balls are done.
