Vegan Lentil Potato Croquettes

Lentils and potatoes, that’s it!

These croquettes are made with only two ingredients (not including spices) and are ready in 35 minutes. I love eating them with hummus but I bet they would make fantastic vegan “meatballs” too!

To make them, all you have to do is mash cooked potatoes and cooked green lentils in a bowl until smooth. Then, add spices if you want and roll the potato mixture into balls. Bake until golden brown and enjoy!

Serve the Croquettes with Your Favorite Sauce

I LOVE dipping these potato croquettes in homemade hummus. Homemade hummus is the easiest thing to make and it’s almost always far healthier than store-bought.

These Potato Croquettes are Great for Meal Prep

What I love about these croquettes, is that they are delicious both warm and cold. Therefore, you could make a double batch on Sunday and bring them with you to work throughout the week, for example.

If you keep them in an airtight container, they will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days. You can also freeze the uncooked balls and cook them whenever you feel like having something crispy, soft and comforting 🙂
