Today folks I must first pay credit to the inspiration for my oven baked lentil and carrot patties recipe coming from a recipe I picked up some time ago from my local Asda Supermarket. That recipe is here.

The recipe was in one of their brochures that I picked up at the till and I took it home and tweaked it slightly to my own variation which I’m publishing here today. In my version though, the patties are oven baked rather than fried, making them healthier.

I also serve mine on a bed of wilted spinach with corn on the cob to provide an altogether delicious quick healthy meal!

Picking up free brochures and recipe cards when I’m out and about has been something I’ve always done. It’s yet another place I get inspiration from for my recipes, plus it doesn’t cost anything.

I’ve got a whole folder full of recipes which I’ve done, or tweaked to make them my own. I always find it fun to change ingredients or combinations of spices to see what comes out and mostly with the intention of making the recipe as healthy as I can.

I think it’s definitely something I’ve inherited from my mum as she has books of recipes pasted from magazines and brochures too. It’s funny the habits we pick up from our elders isn’t it?

Anyway, as I particularly love using green lentils in my recipes this lentil and carrot patties recipe was placed pretty high up on my “to-do” recipe trial list. I like using all types of lentils when I cook but green lentils in particular are said to be particularly heart healthy.

Oven Baked Lentil and Carrot Patties Recipe

If you want your lentil and carrot patties to be more spicy than than they are in this recipe then just add some more chilli powder. I made them suitable for children by being only mildly spiced.

Generally I’ll add more chilli powder than I’ve quoted in the recipe because Lady Lynne and I like our food quite spicy.

    Don’t the green lentils get cooked first…..

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      No, the green lentils are soaked overnight to soften them and then they are baked in the oven to cook them, as the recipe advises. 🙂

  2. These are wonderful. I could see them as little mini fritters, too, as appetizers. YUM!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I never thought of them as little mini fritters too Mimi. That’s a brilliant idea! Thanks

  3. You are the king of patties, Neil! You have so many awesome variations on baked patties…and all so healthy. I could see these being delicious over a chopped salad, too. I hear ya on the recipes from all sorts of places. I have the same thing! I keep a tray on my desk of magazine cuttings and print outs and even just pictures that I find the supermarket sales ad. It’s all inspiration if I need to mix things up a bit! These patties sound delicious! Well done, and I hope you have an amazing weekend ahead!

      “The king of patties”, I like that David. Thanks! Ha ha!

      It’s good to know that I’m not the only one with recipe cuttings and magazine pages collected up. I often think I’m mad and why do I need ALL of those cuttings. But as you say it’s all inspiration if we need to mix things up a bit. Good stuff. Hope you have a good weekend too! 😀

  4. A hearty lentil burger is always game to be on my plate!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Tasty, filling, healthy and of course vegetarian. And this recipe can of course be vegan should the breadcrumbs be vegan. I forgot to mention that in the recipe.

    Are you serious, Neil? Another delicious patties idea, and as a huge fan of lentils, it’s going in my list. I think I should arrange one week and try all these patties 😉

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      That’s amazing Ben. I’m really glad you like my patties. I’m a huge fan of anything you can put in the oven and bake that’s healthy and minimal effort! 🙂

  6. YUM! This recipe sounds amazing as either a stand-alone meal, side dish, or made into a burger patty of its own! I have trouble making patties (they always fall apart when I pan sear them) so I’ve bookmarked your website bc you seem like an expert patty maker! I can’t wait to try a recipe 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      These are great as burgers Christina. I thought about calling them burgers but they would fall apart too easily if made on a BBQ, I think. But yeah, Lynne and I have had them baked then put in a burger roll and they’re excellent!

  7. So you know that friend of mine who was wearing “next to nothing” in my blog post this week?! Yeahhh she’d LOVE this recipe because she’s newly veggie!!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Ha ha! Well you’ll need to point your friend in the direction of this recipe. I appreciate that GiGi. And I bet she would too! 😉

  8. These patties sound delicious. Would you put a sauce over them?

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Jeff. I think if I was to go for a sauce for these then maybe a Cilantro Lime Sauce or something like that would be excellent! 🙂
