Recipe Information

Category: Main Dishes
Recipe Created By: jellin



2 medium sweet potatoes, baked
8 oz dry lentils, rinsed
1 medium carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 -3 slices whole grain bread, broken into small pieces
to taste ground pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil


Boil 4 or 5 cups of water in a saucepan. Put in lentils, carrot, onion, and celery, bring to a boil, and simmer, partially covered, until lentils are cooked, about 20- 30 minutes. Drain.

Peel and mash cooked sweet potatoes. Add maple syrup and mix. Put in drained lentil mixture and bread pieces, and ground pepper to taste, and mix well.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. With your hands, make patties from the mixture and cook until browned, a few minutes on each side.


This recipe is pretty flexible - you can throw in more vegetables if you want. I like to add some frozen spinach.

It's a nice vegetarian/vegan main dish.


I have only made it with wheat bread, but I think any kind would work. I like to use heels.

If avoiding sesame, verify bread ingredients.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
