8 ounces green lentils
3 carrots
3 slices bread
1 onion
1 clove garlic
1 ounce parsley or cilantro
1 egg
seasoning to taste
flour to coat

Boil lentils for 20 minutes in water, drain, and mash gently - not
too hard, as you want some of them to stay whole.

While they are cooking, peel and grate the carrots, make the bread
into crumbs, and finely chop the onion, parsley and garlic. Mix
these and the seasoning with the mashed lentils, and bind together
with egg.

Form into burgers or rissoles or whatever you call the things, coat
with flour - I still don't know if this is necessary - and cook
under the grill (broiler) for 5 minutes each side.

I served this with brown rice, a tomato sauce* and green salad,
but I'm sure they would be nice in buns with relish.

*Tomato sauce made like this: 1 onion 1 clove garlic 1 tbs tomato
puree (paste) 1 tin tomatoes A little extra water Seasoning.
Microwave onion and garlic for about 3 minutes; transfer to saucepan
with the tomato puree, stir, add tinned tomatoes and a little water,
season. bring to the boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. If
it's a bit liquid, boil harder to reduce - get it to the sort of
consistency you would like, bearing in mind you have brown rice to
