Lentil Patty & Gravy Recipe

Lentil Patty

  • 1/4 quick oats
  • 1/4 Italian (or your choice) bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of cooked drained lentils (rinse them)
  • Sautéed onions and tomatoes (brown stew gravy) or onions and carrots (mild curry gravy)
  • Your choice of seasonings (no MSG)
  1. Pray before you cook 🙂
  2. Sautéed veggies
  3. Add lentils, oats, and bread crumbs to a bowl – stir with with a spoon.
  4. Add seasonings
  5. Add veggies and mix until you can’t tell there are oats and breadcrumbs
  6. Cook on low. The patties will brown fast. Once the patties are cooked on both sides, turn the patties on the circular side and allow the round parts to brown, as well.

This makes 6-8 small ones that’s really for like one person. Depends on what you’re eating them with. I ate 6 on the first day and then 4 on the second. Double/triple the recipe to meet your serving count.

The patties have a nice crunch on the outside and are soft on the inside. Pray and enjoy.

Curry Gravy

  • Veggies of your choice
  • Curry + seasonings or your choice
  1. Sautéed and season veggies
  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted sweet cream butter
  1. Turn the stove on low.
  2. Stir the two together until it’s mixed well.
  3. Then pour in 2 cups of vegetable broth (or any of your choice).
  4. Keep stirring with the whisk the entire time. Avoid lumps.
  5. Once it’s all mixed in, as it’s starting to thicken, add the sautéed veggies, I used tomatoes and onions.
  6. Add your seasonings (no MSG). I use garlic sriracha, parsley, spicy jalapeño by Mrs. Dash, and spicy curry. Stir with the whisk.
  7. Last add 1 more tablespoon of flour. Keep stirring. Now it shall thicken at the right consistency, if you like it with more liquid, then you may not want to add the full tablespoon. I like it creamy!

Navy Bean Smoothie/Shake

“You put beans in there?”, says everyone who doesn’t know the power of the navy bean.

This Saviours’ Day, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan let us know that it is now law to eat one meal a day.

With slim Sisters and Brothers striving to obey, there are some concerns regarding weight. Some of us are mentioning the need for protein shakes, but whey and other powders are not healthy. The alternative is what? The navy bean.

Last year, I fell off from the suggested one meal a day plan, so when Ramadan came, I felt the need to find ways to get more protein. I know the navy bean has the most protein, so I searched for ways for the bean to fill me. This is when I heard about navy bean smoothies. Initially, the thought sounded disgusting, but then I started thinking about bean pie and said this has to be delicious.

This year, I returned to eating every 48-hours and the need for more protein hasn’t been the problem. But now that I gave up chips and sweets for Lent, I wanted a quick fix that wouldn’t cause me to break the fast. So I returned to the navy bean smoothie or shake (whatever you want to call it). I’m so thankful for the navy bean. It allows you to be creative and healthy, all while feeding that sweet tooth.

Are you looking for a healthy protein shake? If so, this may be for you.

Banana & Cinnamon

1 banana

1/2 cup of frozen navy beans

1/2 or 1/3 cup of milk

Cinnamon to your liking

Apples, Bananas, & Cinnamon

1 apple

1 banana

1/2 cup of frozen navy beans

1 cup of milk

Cinnamon to your liking

Sweetener options

  • Blueberry agave (it’s honestly worse than honey)
  • Organic honey
  • Dates
  • You can add chocolate (you’re going to love it)
  • I honestly rarely add any sweeteners. The fruit should be all of the flavor you need.

I use whole milk. Once, I ran out of whole milk and used my family’s nasty unsweetened almond milk *laughs* (it was actually good). However, I recommend raw milk. The amount of milk depends on how thick you prefer it. The consistency is your choice!

I don’t measure cinnamon, as you can see, sometimes I go a little overboard. I love cinnamon. It’s good for inflammation and much more.

Frozen navy beans are recommended, so you can avoid adding ice. Ice will make your smoothie/shake watery.

I encourage you to drink this within 20- 30-minutes after your meal to ensure nutrients digest properly. That’s all for now. If you give it a try, let me know how you like it.
