Lentil cakes with garlic and herbs.
A delicious mixture of spices and herbs come together to make these mouth watering heartwarming bites we call lentil cakes. The aroma of fresh tomatoes, salsa and chopped cilantro filled the kitchen as we prepared our delicious food. Before we made them I thought they were going to come out like little lentil muffins. They ended up looking more like patties than anything (almost resembling veggie burgers.) Something to look out for while making lentil cakes is making sure the mixture is the right texture to form into a patty before putting them into the oil to fry. It's also important to make sure you have a good space to fry them and don't put too many in the pan at once. It was so hard for me to not let one burn while another was getting flipped. Other than that everything went well when making the lentil cakes. I think of them as more of a winter time food but they're so good I'd eat them whenever.
