Grilled cucumber salad


1.Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line oven tray with baking paper.
2.Put the lentils into a saucepan with 4 cups (1 litre) of water; bring to the boil. Cook for 30 minutes or until tender; drain.
3.Meanwhile, put the spinach leaves into a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook until soft and dark green. Remove from heat and squeeze to remove any excess liquid; chop finely.
4.Put the drained lentils into a large bowl with the chopped spinach, almond meal, parmesan cheese, oregano leaves, lemon rind, white pepper and egg. Season well with sea-salt; stir to combine.
5.Shape 2 flat tablespoons of lentil mixture into flat patties; place on the baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
6.Meanwhile, heat a grill plate over a high flame; grill the cucumber wedges until marked on all sides. Transfer to a board; roughly chop the cucumber then put into a bowl with the cherry tomatoes, mint leaves and yoghurt. Gently fold to combine.
7.Serve the baked patties with the cucumber salad and fresh lemon wedges.
