Sweet Potato Fries

Dash of Olive Oil

Lentil Burger with Sweet Potato Harissa Fries Method

Lentil Burger

Gently boil the lentils in the water for approx 30 minutes until all or most of the water is gone. Mix the onions, red pepper and carrots in a frying pan and brown over a low heat until softened. Add the lentils, rolled oats, breadcrumbs, and season to taste.

Whilst the mixture is still warm, form into burger patties to the size and shape you prefer. Once you have molded the shapes you are happy with, either shallow fry the burger for 1-2 minutes on each side, or bake at 200c for 15 minutes.

Add garnish to finish.

Sweet Potato Fries

Slice your sweet potatoes into desired shape, trying to keep each one an equal size to ensure they cook evenly.

Mix the sweet potato in a bowl with the olive oil, sugar, harissa, and salt ensuring each is coated thoroughly.

Bake at 190c for 30-40 minutes, turning half way.
