Directions

Click:

  1. To a large pot, add the potato cubes and dry lentils, and cover with 2L of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and let it simmer uncovered for 15 - 20 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked through and the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork. Then strain the potatoes and lentils through a sieve.
  2. Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Add the cooked potatoes and lentils to a large bowl, along with the masala seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Use a fork or potato masher to mash everything together. It's okay if some of the lentils are not completely mashed.
  4. Take 2 Tbsp of the mixture and form it into little balls in your hands, and then press down into little disc-shaped patties. The mixture should make about 16 patties in total.
  5. Transfer the patties to a lined baking tray, and bake on the centre rack of the oven for 25 - 30 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  6. Cut the carrots into rather thin strips - the thinner the carrots are cut, the quicker they will cook.
  7. Heat a large pan on medium-high heat, and add the oil and the carrots. Let the carrots cook for 3 - 4 minutes.
  8. Then add the onions and cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes, or until softened to your liking.
  9. Make the garlic sauce by combining the yogurt, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  10. If desired, heat up the tortillas in a large pan or in the oven.
  11. Assemble the wraps with garlic sauce, spinach, carrots and onion, and the lentil potato patties. Enjoy!

Notes

  • * Our store-bought roti masala seasoning consists of ground coriander, turmeric, cumin, mustard, nigella, fenugreek, and pepper. If you don't have access to a similar spice blend, simply substitute out for an equal amount of curry powder.

Storage

  • Assembled wraps are best if enjoyed immedietly.
  • Store each component separately in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

The recipe is surprisingly very delicious since I am skeptical about the yogurt sauce, but I'm hooked with the taste of the sauce and will keep making it for future wraps!

PUL Team - Oct. 14, 2021, 3:17 a.m.

So happy the recipe is being enjoyed, Claire, thank you!


Sarah - Oct. 4, 2021, 2:47 p.m.

Delicious !


Rikki - Oct. 1, 2021, 3:20 a.m.

These were so simple and delicious. My son, who is a pretty picky eater, loved them.


Irene - Sept. 29, 2021, 8:25 p.m.

I often make legume burgers/patties, but never saw or tried it with potatoes before! I used different spices and herbs to flavour it and added mushrooms too, it was so delicious! Thank you for the recipe, I'm happy I doubled the recipe for the patties because I will enjoy it again tomorrow. I didn't make the wraps though, although they sound good too!

PUL Team - Sept. 29, 2021, 9:28 p.m.

Aw we're so glad the burger was enjoyed, Irene! It means so much 🤗


Jennifer - Sept. 26, 2021, 7:26 p.m.

These wraps were so good. I didn’t have yogurt but had some garlicky cashew cream that worked great! We quite often have leftover potatoes so these will be in steady rotation.

PUL Team - Sept. 27, 2021, 4:24 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely! So glad to hear, Jennifer 🙂


Anusha - Sept. 25, 2021, 12:55 a.m.

Hi PUL,

Thank you for such a simple and easy to cook recipe. I made these wraps for dinner at my home this week, with a few changes to the recipe; replaced the lentils with green peas and tried the wraps with lettuce one day and with spinach the next day. The wraps turned so delicious, that i couldn't stop with one wrap. Just loved them ! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes; I have tried some of your recipes earlier too and will be trying more of them soon :) !

PUL Team - Sept. 26, 2021, 1:47 a.m.

Hi Anusha! Aw you're much too kind. Thank you for the glowing review and for sharing your experience with this one ☺️


Rachel - Sept. 22, 2021, 6:02 p.m.

We loved this one! It was simple to make, and ended up making 6 servings, so even more budget friendly! The patties stuck together really well, and the simple mix of carrots and onion was simply delicious! They will be made again very soon and added to our rotation of frequent dishes!

PUL Team - Sept. 22, 2021, 10:17 p.m.

Ooo so happy to hear, Rachel, thank you! Happy cooking 🤗


Sophie - Sept. 8, 2021, 6:37 p.m.

Love the idea! If I was going to freeze them, should I do it after I bake them, after I fry them, or before I bake them?

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 7:01 p.m.

Hey Sophie, thanks for the lovely question! We didn't try freezing them so we can't say with absolute certainty, but we suspect either could work. Freezing before frying may help with freshness though. If you freeze after baking and your freezer causes any freezer burn (excess ice crystal formation), the patties may get soggy once thawed, but placing them back in the oven to dry out and crisp up should help. If you try freezing them, do let us know how it goes ☺️


Laurie - Sept. 7, 2021, 1:08 a.m.

This ! I loved it and my family too. It is tasty, simple and great to make ahead. It will be part of my list of classic recipes I use often.
I wish you would make more of these Vegan Budget Challenge videos.

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 1:52 a.m.

Aw so lovely to hear, Laurie! We'll note down a request for more. In the meantime, you can find our other budget-friendly challenges here if you haven't already seen them: pickuplimes.com/video/?sb=bud… 😊


Shivany - Sept. 5, 2021, 7:39 p.m.

This was amazing, I switched up the masala a little to use what I had at home, and added some sautéed red cabbage and avocado slices!
My normally skeptical husband couldn’t stop raving about it. I wanted to freeze some patties but they got over too quickly haha!

PUL Team - Sept. 6, 2021, 1:03 a.m.

Ooo so lovely to hear, Shivany, thank you for the glowing review 😃


Hanne - Sept. 5, 2021, 3:17 p.m.

Hi PUL
I just tried these, and while they turned out ok, the mix was more like cookie dough, I think it is because I followed the package instructions and cooked the green lentils for 30 minutes. They where very mushy, but I was afraid to cook them shorter, as I know they can be toxic if not boiled long enough. Is it really ok to only boil them for 15 minutes and do you know the minimum cook time?
I hope this can also help me become better at using lentils in general, as I normally don't like them due to that mushy texture

PUL Team - Sept. 5, 2021, 8:55 p.m.

Hi there, Hanne! So sorry to hear the recipe didn't turn out as expected. It sounds like the lentils were overcooked, as they often turn mushy when this happens.

The cooking time for lentils may vary depending on a few factors (such as the portion or heat), although generally, 15-20 minutes is a good estimate. We want the lentils to be tender rather than crunchy, but not too mushy. If it's preferred to cook them for longer, lowering the temperature may help to reduce the mushiness. We hope this helps and the recipe is enjoyed if you're able to give it another try 😊


Poppy - Aug. 29, 2021, 7:47 p.m.

Absolutely love these! So simple to make, grateful flavour, really good for cold salads and sandwiches afterwards. Plus they taste really good in a wrap with mango chutney!! I flipped them half way through cooking to get an even bake.

PUL Team - Aug. 29, 2021, 9:51 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Poppy, thank you for sharing your experience with this recipe!


Charlotte - Aug. 24, 2021, 5:41 p.m.

I really enjoyed this recipe as I am a big fan of the garlic yogurt sauce that you use on the BBQ Cauliflower Pizza and the one in this recipe is super similar! The method of making the patties and the shape reminded me of homemade falafel but the potato in them gave them an extra crispness when baked which I loved. The combination of textures and flavours in this recipe made it a complete winner! 🙌🏻🌿


Donna Leone - Aug. 24, 2021, 3:08 a.m.

I made this tonight for my family. We all loved it!! So easy to make, too. Will be making it again, for sure! Thank you!!

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2021, 4 p.m.

So happy to hear it, Donna, thank you! 🤗


Emily Donnelly - Aug. 20, 2021, 3:28 p.m.

This was really delicious! I got the link tot he recipe from Sustainably Vegan. I think maybe cooking it on a really humid day was a bad choice ebcause my smoke detectors were like IT'S HOT AND THERE ARE PARTICLES INT HE AIR even though they didn't burn, haha! I did a different spice mix: 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, and 1 tsp dried dill. It was really good! I will have to try it with the masala or curry sometime too.

PUL Team - Aug. 23, 2021, 10:38 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe despite the smoke detector issues, Emily! The spice mix sounds lovely 😍


Hana - Aug. 19, 2021, 12:15 p.m.

Great recipe Sadia! I used chickpeas as I didn't have lentils on hand, and it worked really well. Also tried a few in the air-fryer...worked well!

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 7:17 p.m.

Ooo thanks for sharing, Hana, it's super appreciated ✨


Cristin - Aug. 17, 2021, 7:30 p.m.

This was absolutely delicious! The whole family loved it. We didn't have roti spices but we had biryani spices and that worked really well. We ended up doubling the number of tortillas and adding some sautéed red cabbage -- we were hungry!

PUL Team - Aug. 18, 2021, 1:07 a.m.

We're so thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Cristin, thanks for sharing your experience with this one!


Josephine - Aug. 16, 2021, 11:50 a.m.

Hi PUL,
Frist things first: what a great new website!! :)
Second: we love the challenge so far! My husband really liked these patties - we were wondering, would they be good to batch cook and then keep them in the freezer to heat up later on?
Thanks and have a wonderful start into the week! :)

PUL Team - Aug. 17, 2021, 5:44 a.m.

Hey Josephine, great question! We didn't try freezing them so can't say for sure, but I imagine it'll work. The only thing I can think of is if your freezer causes any freezer burn (excess ice crystal formation), the patties may get soggy once thawed, but placing them back in the oven to dry out and crisp up should help. If you try freezing them, let us know how it goes 😊


Anasofia - Aug. 13, 2021, 10:26 a.m.

Hi PUL. I love everything you do. I dont have an oven and i really want to make the patties... So can a large pan or an air fryer work for this? Do you happen to know how to cook the patties in a pan or an air fryer? (the question is also for any of you reading this ♥) Thanks so much! Love from México.

PUL Team - Aug. 14, 2021, 5:44 p.m.

Hey Anasofia, thanks for the question! We imagine it could work, although it might take some experimenting to find the right temperature and time. Trying between 350-375°F and checking on the patties after a few minutes is one idea. Do let us know if you give it a try 🤗


Eleni - Aug. 13, 2021, 2:07 a.m.

Used curry spice instead of roti masala. Super yummy and filling! Definitely going into our regular rotation! Thanks for the delicious recipe!


Artemis - Aug. 11, 2021, 6:52 p.m.

Thank you so much. I discovered the recipe yesterday, I cooked it today. Just perfect and versatile. I made the wrap with the product I had in the fridge and there is no leftover. Everybody loved it.

PUL Team - Aug. 12, 2021, 1:50 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the wraps, Artemis, thanks for sharing!


Lizzie - Aug. 10, 2021, 11:42 a.m.

I absolutely adored this!! It was so tasty and super easy to make. Even my dad (who's a very big meat lover) loved it!!


Ellie - Aug. 10, 2021, 3:39 a.m.

Awesome for meal prepping in the office. Very easy to make, however my patties definitely needed much longer than 30 minutes.
So easy, so delicious and so nutritious. Would definitely make this again!

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2021, 4:11 a.m.

Thanks for the honest review, Ellie! Ovens sometimes vary in their strength and airflow. We'd recommend increasing the temperature a bit if you give the recipe another try and would prefer a shorter cooking time. We've also taken note of the feedback so if it's a common issue we can adjust the recipe accordingly to improve it. Thanks again :D


Sarah B. - Aug. 9, 2021, 8:07 p.m.

I just made this for dinner and wow!
The flavours work so well together, I would never have thought to add carrots in wraps.
I want to experiment with the garlic sauce a bit, as the raw garlic flavour was too much for me. Might try roasting some garlic, or using garlic powder instead. Besides that I loved everything.
The patties seem like a versatile recipe too, just add different seasonings for different flavours, excited to try it out.
The recipe is also great for weeknights for me, as after each step I could clean up and make sure I didnt have a ton of dishes to deal with after my meal.

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2021, 3:58 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Sarah, thank you very much for taking the time to share! Adding less garlic, extra spices, or lemon juice to the sauce may help with the flavour for that. So thrilled the recipe has been enjoyed in any case :)


Freddi - Aug. 9, 2021, 4:04 a.m.

Made this for dinner and they were delicious. I don't adhere to a vegan diet but love vegetables. I used garam masala in the patties and added about a half teaspoon of sweetener to the sauce, it was great!


Joanne - Aug. 8, 2021, 5:14 p.m.

Thank you for this recipe! It was perfect for dinner, so fresh and delicious. I replaced the masala seasoning with curry and I only had red lentils, so it came out a bit more mushy than it looks in your recipe. But the taste was still very good. I will definitely try it again soon.

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 10:59 p.m.

So happy you enjoyed the recipe, Joanne, and thanks for sharing your substitutes with us!


Geetha - Aug. 7, 2021, 5:09 a.m.

Hi Sadia, I’ve tried many of your recipes and have not been disappointed! Thank you! I am wondering if you could suggest an alternative to yogurt in the garlic sauce. I live in China where it’s not easy to find unsweetened plant based yogurt. I’ve tried cashew cream, but miss yogurt.

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 9:45 p.m.

Hey there, Geetha! So happy to hear you're enjoying PUL recipes and thanks for the question. We must be honest and say we're not confident on a substitute that will work as well as the yogurt for this one.

Perhaps making homemade yogurt (Minimalist Baker has a great recipe for coconut yogurt), or swapping the garlic sauce for another more accessible sauce, such as a tahini-based garlic sauce or store-bought vegan tzatziki. Do let us know if you experiment with this one. In the meantime, we've noted down a request for a homemade yogurt recipe 🙂


Madi - Aug. 7, 2021, 4:57 a.m.

I made this for dinner tonight. For lack of roti masala seasoning I used Penzeys Now Curry mix. The wrap was fantastic! 10/10 would make again.
