Convenience food for school lunches - Don't let the food industry fool you

Spicy Lentil Patties

Lentils are a new ingredient we have been experimenting with recently. These patties can be great for breakfast, lunch or dinner and are delicious with some eggs or a side salad. My daughter and I enjoyed them both hot and cold and always with a generous dollop of plain Greek yogurt.
