1 cup red lentils
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium red onions
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
3 medium zucchinis
1 cup wholemeal breadcrumbs
0.5 cups wholemeal plain flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander


Cook lentils in a large pot of boiling water for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain.
Heat half of the oil in a large fry pan over medium heat. Add diced onions and cook until brown and soft. Add brown sugar and water. Stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes. Cool.
Place lentils, onion, grated zucchini (squeeze to remove excess water), breadcrumbs, flour, eggs and spices in a large bowl. Mix well and shape into patties.
Heat remaining oil in a non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on absorbent paper.
Makes 18 patties.

Hot tip! Serve with a large garden salad for a complete meal.
