Lens little boy

läätse pikkpoiss

You probably know the classic piccolo from your childhood. But did you know you can also whip up a littleneck wholemeal with no added fat? Indeed it is! Lentils are an unparalleled legume, packed with nutrients. They are nutritious and healthy, but low in fat. By combining lentils with various herbs and vegetables, you get an unrivalled combination of flavours that is also perfect for cooking the pork. Green and brown lentils have a stronger texture and help the pastry to hold together nicely. The lentil morsel is also a good healthy wholefood alternative for the party table. Try it for yourself!

How to make a little boy with a lens?

Preheat the oven to 190°C and line the loaf tin with baking paper (if using a silicone tin, baking paper is not necessary.

Then rinse the lentils under running water and bring to the boil with the broth and bay leaves. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the lentils are soft but hold their shape.

While the lentils are cooking, prepare the vegetables. To do this, simmer the chopped onion, carrot and mushrooms in a pan with a little water. When the vegetables are ripe, add crushed garlic, dried herbs and sea salt. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat and set the vegetable mixture aside.

When the lentils are ready, strain out the excess water if necessary, remove the bay leaves and pour the lentils into a food processor. Add the vegetable mixture and oatmeal to the lentils. Blend the mixture with the mixer until smooth, but do not let it completely puree. Mash gently until a cohesive mass is formed, but lentils and vegetable pieces are visible.

When the mixture is ready, pour it into a loaf tin (or silicone mould) previously covered with baking paper and press until smooth. In a small bowl, mix together the tomato paste, maple syrup, lemon juice, water and seasonings and carefully coat the baby chicken with the glaze.

Then place in the oven and bake at 190 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing, garnish as desired and serve.
