I love these because they're so quick to make. You can pretty much use anything you want for this recipe; carrots, sweetcorn, onion, chilli, different herbs and spices. You can get "nut cutlets" in Aldi which is where I got the inspiration from. Those are very nice and pretty cheap! This recipe is cheaper though.

Ingredients
optional
Servings: 1/4 pounders
Instructions
  1. Dry-fry the onion in a large saucepan on medium-high for around 3 minutes until slightly brown. Add 1 tbsp water at a time if it starts to stick.
  2. Add the garlic and fry for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil. Add spices at this stage if you want to.
  4. Reduce heat and add the soya mince, lentils and salt. Add a splash of water and mix thoroughly before simmering for 20 minutes with the lid on. Try not to let it stick to the pan!
  5. While the mince is simmering, cook and drain the pasta. Save some of the starchy liquid to add to your mince if it gets too thick.
  6. Add the basil to the mixture and taste to see if you need to add more salt or spices. I add black pepper and a handful of kale at this point. Put the lid on and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until the kale has cooked.
  7. Serve and sprinkle some nutritional yeast over the top like you would Parmesan cheese.
Recipe Notes

These are great to chill or freeze if you want to make them in batches. Cook straight from frozen under the grill or bake for about 20 minutes on 200°C.
