Let's get cultural with one of Denmark's favourite dishes: Frikadeller. This recipe is handed over to me from my friend, it's completely veganlydelicious. These are super easy and after one go, you'll master the recipe. It has become a weekly favourite with us. We use it for sandwiches, burgers, salads and quick snacks on the go.
|200 ml red lentils, rinsed|
|100 ml pumpkin seeds, chopped in a mix of fine and rough, to give texture and bite|
|100 ml oats|
|100 ml flour (white flour, wholewheat flour, spelt or oat flour)|
|100 ml water|
4 spring onions, finely chopped
|3 tsp madras curry powder|
|1 tsp salt|
|3 tsp paprika|
|1 tsp garam masala|
|2 tbsp lemon juice|
|1 tbsp Soya sauce|
|Let's do it|
|1)||In a small sauce pan, place rinsed red lentils and water. Bring to boil. Once boiling add a lid and let simmer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes remove from heat. Let it rest while you get the rest of the ingredients ready.|
|2)||Add the hot lentils to a bowl with the fresh chopped spring onions.|
|3)||Add everything else mix, mash and fold|
|4)||Let the lentil mixture rest in the fridge 10-15 minutes* - it may seem a bit wet, but trust me, it's perfect for moist and tasty patties.You can leave the batter for longer if you need.|
|5)||When you are ready, head a frying pan with a dash of oil. Dunk a serving spoon of the pattie-batter onto the pan. No need to shape them. They will all come out beautifully different, like us.|
Serve with olive bread, tofu Caesar salad and asparagus.
If you are on a roll make green peas frikadeller as well.
*Pep it up and change with different spices.
