Quinoa, Lentil, and Walnut Protein Patties [Vegan]

Ingredients:

1/3 cup dry quinoa
1/3 cup dry green lentils
3 cups water, for boiling
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove
3 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Preperation

Boil the quinoa and the lentils in 3 cups of water for 10 minutes. Strain them after boiling. They will be cooked, but still with a somewhat hard texture.
Put the lentils and quinoa in a food processor and mix briefly. Add the onion, garlic, nutritional yeast, cumin, black pepper, and breadcrumbs and mix them until thoroughly combined but with a slight texture left.
Add the walnuts and pulse the food processor a few times.
Shape into patties and cook both sides (until you get a good crust) in a lightly oiled skillet over medium heat. Alternatively, you can bake them for 15-25 minutes at 400°F.
Cook the patties in a skillet over medium heat, or bake them for 15-25 minutes.
