Pumpkin Seed Coated Lentil Patties and Vegan Strength

After making Moroccan Chickpea Patties from Vive Le Vegan! I decided to try the Pumpkin Seed Coated Lentil Patties from the same book. I made a few changes – I used green lentils instead of brown, ground coriander instead of seeds, a regular onion instead of a red onion and curry powder instead of paste. They were really good and had a nice lightly spiced flavor. We had them along with mashed potatoes and sweetcorn. On the left hand side of the plate is some Omega Ketchup, also from Vive Le Vegan! It’s basically ketchup with flax oil mixed in. It’s such a good, sneaky way of getting some more Omega 3’s in your diet. I didn’t add as much as suggested in the book and even though I don’t generally like the taste of flax oil it blended really nicely with the ketchup and didn't taste oily. Unfortunately Wee G was not fooled and said the ketchup tasted funny...

This is my garlic crusher. I use it every day, or at least I did until the bottom fell out of it. Now, it may have been overuse or old age that did it, but I prefer to think that it broke due to my incredible vegan strength. I am so strong that I can break solid metal. Okay, maybe not, but next time someone tells you that vegans are weak due to lack of protein (or whatever) tell them about this guy.
