1 Combine the lentils, carrot, parsley, spring onion, garlic and lemon rind. Use a potato masher to mash until they are combined. Add the egg and half the breadcrumbs. Stir until well combined.
2 Shape the mixture into 8 patties. Coat patties in the remaining breadcrumbs. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Spray patties all over with cooking oil. Add half the patties to the pan and cook for 2 minutes each side, or until brown and hot. Repeat with remaining patties.
3 Place salad greens on serving plates. Top with patties and tzatziki and serve.
Replace carrot with 400g potatoes, cooked, and add a small can of salmon for fish cakes.
