3/4cupBrown Lentils(or other variety that will hold shape when cooked)
3/4CupLong grain brown rice
1/2CupSpinach leavesfinely chopped
1Spring onionfinely chopped
Salt and pepperto taste
Cook both the lentils and the rice (separately), according to packet directions until both are soft. Once cooked, drain and set aside to cool.
Peel the potato and cook until soft and starchy. Drain and set aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle grate the cooked potato and add to a large mixing bowl.
Add all ingredients including the cooked lentils and rice and mix well to combine. Adjust seasonings to taste.*
Chill in the refrigerator 15-30 min. Form into patties and cook in a well-oiled fry pan over medium heat. Cook on both sides until golden and heated through to the centre.
Serve with your favourite side salad or steamed vegetables and condiments of choice.
*If the mixture seems a little too dry, simply add a splash or two of preferred milk. On the other hand, if the mixture seems to be a little too wet add some extra oat bran until you have a mixture that holds together well.
