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 🙂

These Vegan Lentil Potato Croquettes are easy to make, delicious and perfect for meal prep! They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Enjoy!
- 400 g potatoes, cooked
- 150 g green lentils, cooked (2 cups)
- 1 tbsp curry powder
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 430F or 220C.
In a large mixing bowl, add potatoes and lentils and mash with a fork until there is no potato chunk left. Don't worry if lentils are not completely mashed.
Add curry powder, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper if using. Mash until everything is well combined.
Take about 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll it between your palms. You should be able to form 17 balls. Place the balls on a lined baking sheet.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crispy. Serve with hummus or with your favourite sauce. Enjoy!
