Lentil cutlets with chanterelles
Lentil cutlets with chanterelles - a delicious, original hot dish that can be served for dinner with a side dish of mashed potatoes and a thick white sauce. If you want to surprise guests and family, prepare these tender diet cutlets. You can replace the chanterelles with champignons, because not every month you see “forest gold” in the forest or on the market.
I cooked cutlets from Canadian green lentils, it cooks in about half an hour, which is convenient, since it takes about the same amount of time to cook mushrooms. Regular lentils need to be soaked in cold water for several hours in advance, so that it cooks faster.
Such cutlets can be fried in a non-stick pan, however, it should be noted that the minced meat from lentils and boiled mushrooms is rather capricious, despite the presence of eggs in it, strives to crumble, so it is preferable to bake the dish in the oven.
