Lentil Patties with Winter Vegetable Medley Recipe

This is one of those rare dishes where I don't miss eating meat. I used store-bought steamed black lentils and made little croquettes using leftover taro brioche I bought at the Asian market. After a brief pan-fry, I tossed them in a medley of winter vegetables. I tried to balance the mild sweetness from the brioche and caramelized onions with the earthy, savory flavors of the mashed lentils and grated Romano cheese. To complete the meal, I added Brussels sprouts, yellow bell peppers, asparagus and mushrooms, and a touch of Meyer lemon zest for a little brightness.

When I got married, I thought I was going to convert my husband Lulu and introduce meat and fish to his diet. Alas, it turned out slightly differently (by that I mean the exact opposite), since I have significantly reduced my consumption of meat and seafoodWith dishes like this, I find I don’t miss meat as much as I thought I would.

Lentil Patties in Lavash Wrap (+ Giveaway) Recipe

Getting creative with sandwiches usually means changing the combination of meats, cheeses, veggies or sauces used. Another way to go is to use a different kind of bread. I’ve tried making sandwiches with naans in the past, and they turned out fabulously. So when our friend Lilea from California Lavash sent us packages of soft, thin, out-of-this-world lavash bread, I decided to make sandwich wraps with it. Fresh lavash bread is flexible and doesn’t tear so I tightly rolled up each lavash around the filling into a cone, folded the bottom and secured the wrap into a small glass cup.

For the filling, I used left-over mashed potato curry, tomatoes, lentil patties (for a vegetarian version), blue cheese, yogurt sauce and alfalfa sprouts for freshness. If you want to serve the same treats for your family, Pham Fatale and California Lavash have put together a giveaway this week. Just click the "like" button below and you’re entered in the contest! At the end of the week, we’ll pick three winners at random who will win two bags of whole wheat, original, spinach and pizza lavash. And check back again this week to see what else I do with lavash. Good Luck!
