Lentil cakes, a very good meal for a baby or a different appetizer for the rest of the family. Lentils are an incredible source of proteins, I would suggest to introduce them in your baby’s diet starting from 8 months, when the digestive system will be ready to breake them down easily. Being also very rich in fibers, they will help your baby having regular bowel movements 🙂
Lentil cakes are easy to prepare: in addition to lentils I’m using potatoes, yellow ones and sweet ones to give an extra starchy texture
I will gently steam the vegetables and separately cook the legumes in a pan.
Once everything is cooked I will mix all the ingredients and shape individual small lentil cakes on a baking sheet. I used cookie cutters to give my cakes a nice heart shape 🙂
In the oven for 15/20 minutes and the lentil cakes will be ready to be enjoyed!
I also prepared a very fast yogurt sauce to dip in the cakes 🙂
See you next Thursday with another recipe!!!
