Spicy Lentil Patties
Yields about a dozen patties

1 cup dry green lentils
1 large raw potato, grated very fine
1 onion minced fine
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup mild salsa or 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes and 1 fresh jalapeno, minced
1/4 cup bread crumbs

Cook lentils for 1/2 hour in about 2 cups of water. While the
lentils are cooking, mix all other ingredients except bread crumbs
in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

Drain lentils quickly, and add to the rest of the ingredients.
Add homemade bread crumbs, and let the mixture sit for about 10
minutes. It should NOT be really thick. It should be very moist.
Don't worry about the patties falling apart, as the starch from
the raw potato will bind the burger together as it cooks.

Form into patties and either bake on cookie sheet or fry in a non
stick pan until done. I prefer to use a little olive oil to fry
them in because it gives it a very nice flavor.

The patties usually turn out moist enough that you don't need gravy
or sauce of any kind, but if you like, a bit of tomato sauce or
salsa is nice.

Leftovers can either be frozen for a couple of weeks, or use them
the next day for a sandwich filling. (The flavor is absorbed much
more the second day and is yummy).
