  • 3 cups cooked brown lentils
  • 1 cup mashed potato
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds

  • The vegetarian stock powder gives these a real kick in the flavour department.
  • L.S.A. is a healthy mix of crushed linseed, almond and sunflower seeds. You can find it in the supermarket in the health food aisle.
  • I made a double batch of these and froze them for later.
