In the mood for something tasty yet unusual? Staring at those pantry items and stumped about what to make? Somewhat like a falafel (but not fried), these delicious patties are inexpensive to prepare and form the basis for a quick lunch or an elegant dinner. We love the fact that they use two core food storage ingredients — garbanzos and lentils — too.
Try the cakes served over a light and spicy tomato chutney or with some cilantro, lemon and sesame almond pesto. Once frozen, they can easily be reheated or eaten at room temperature on a toasted bun with condiments of your choice. Or try with a sauce over rice with some green veggies for a hearty dinner or eat with a salad and pita bread. Enjoy.
