Curry Balls

Y’all.  That red lentil curry recipe yields a lot of food.  I have to figure out what I am going to do with my leftovers!  This is how I, as an American, can take nearly any recipe and turn it into burger potential.  These could have easily have been named “curry patties” if I had smushed them down a little before putting them into the oven.  If one had some bread, this could also be the beginnings of many delicious sandwiches.  The possibilities are nearly endless.  I hope y’all enjoy this one.  Let me know what you think!

  4. For curry balls, combine quinoa, lentils, curry, and oatmeal in a large bowl
  5. Mix ingredients with a spatula (or your hands if you’re feeling festive)
