Crabby Patty with Lentils (S Helper)~Trim Healthy Tuesday

1 15-ish ounce can of wild caught salmon
1 egg
1 tsp Redmond Organic Seasoning Salt
1 tbs Dried Parsley
2 shakes of Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp Dried Onions

1-2 tbs ground flax

1/2 cup cooked lentils
Combine everything except the lentils in a bowl and mash/mix with fork. Leave the bones in, even, they’re soft and you barely know they’re there. Preheat your skillet on medium-high heat, and grease with coconut oil. I REALLY love Tropical Traditions expeller-pressed oil. Turn heat down to medium and shape into 4 patties and fry about 5 minutes on each side. You want a nice crust. Instead of flax, you could use ground oats, but I’m allergic so I use and LOVE the flax. It makes a great binder.

For the lentils, I prepare them as stated on the bag, but I use chicken broth. It’s free of fat AND carbs, so I don’t feel any guilt about the added deliciousness.  1/2 cup of lentils doesn’t sound like much, but if you take the time to measure it out, it’s actually a lot!
The lentils make this an S Helper meal, which you can have after you’ve seen some weight loss progress. Otherwise, you could pair the patty with non-starchy veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, squash, or okra to make it an S meal.

Trim Healthy Mama doesn’t have to be complicated. This is a super simple recipe, which I love. I don’t much care for a challenge.

    Hi you mentioned that the crabby patties are really good with flax but you don’t mention flax in the ingredients list. How much flax did you use and did you add it all together with everything else?

      Oops! I’m not sure how I missed that! I used between 1 and 2 tablespoons of ground flax. I updated my post. Thank you so much for your comment. :)
