  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 slices wholemeal or wholegrain bread
  • 200g Swiss brown mushrooms
  • 1 tbs thyme leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

1. Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until golden.

2. Meanwhile, process bread in a food processor to coarse crumbs. Transfer to a bowl. Add mushrooms, thyme and garlic to processor and pulse until finely chopped.

3. Increase heat to medium-high. Add mushroom mixture, cumin and coriander to pan with onion and cook for 3-4 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Transfer to bowl with breadcrumbs and set aside to cool.

4. Stir lentils and egg into mixture. Shape mixture into 12 even patties.

5. Heat remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook patties, in batches, for 5 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
