Haven's Kitchen Herby Chimichurri Lentil Fritters

What you need

  • 1 cup French lentils, soaked overnight in water
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • ½ pouch (¼ cup) of Haven’s Kitchen Herby Chimichurri
  • sea salt
  • olive oil

How to make them

1. After the lentils have soaked overnight, save about ¼ cup of the soaking water and strain the lentils. Add the lentils, shallot, and Haven's Kitchen Herby Chimichurri into a food processor. Pulse several times, until the mixture is just combined and still coarse. Remove half of the mixture from the processor and puree the remaining mixture, about 30 seconds.

2. Combine the two mixtures in a large bowl and season with a large pinch of salt.

3. Place a large sauté pan over medium heat and add oil to cover the bottom. When the oil begins to shimmer, form the mixture in to palm-sized fritters with your hands and gently lay them into the pan.

4. Cook the fritters for about 3 minutes, then flip, and cook until both sides are browned and crispy and the patties are cooked through.

5. Place the fritters on a plate or the cooling rack. Sprinkle with salt while they’re still hot.
