Lentil and sweet potato patties

This is a low GI Lentil Pattie recipe that I found on the web site Taste.com.au
I’m going to do a little tinkering with it in the future to enhance the flavours but loved it as it is.


Roast Tomato Sauce

1 tbsp finely shredded basil
Black pepper

Arrange tomatoes cut side up on oven trayIMG_1331
