Lentil cakes

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 babyโ€™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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello,

    I just descover your link and I am truly happy to find it, you are absolutely amazing!

    Your recipes are very good, you use a lot of veggies and the way you present them is really very beautiful and appealing. I cannot wait to try all of them!!

    I have intolerance to corn. Why do you use corn flour for the lentil snacks, what is the advantage or the final result.

    Can I substitute the corn flour for something else?

    Thank you very much for your time.

    You are absolutely awesome and very enthusiastic. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, I will recommend your link for sure.

    God bless you.

      Hi Rosy!
      thank you so much for your comment and for watching BuonaPappa. Corn is not a main ingredient in this recipe. I use it on top of the lentil cakes to give a crunchy touch. You can either skip the corn flour or substitute it with breadcrumbs. I would suggest Panko breadcrumbs as they will give a crunchier result. Let me know if you like them!!! ciao, b
