Wash the lentils and boil for about 15/20 minutes in a small pot over medium heat. Boil the seasonal vegetable you have chosen in another casserole. Let it cool and drain well the vegetable as well as the lentils. Combine all the ingredients and mix until tender but not too much.

Preheat the oven at 170°C, cover a baking pan with greaseproof paper and brush with oil. Form round rissoles with your hands and cover them with bread crumbs before putting them onto the pan. Bake red lentil rissoles for about 30 minutes until golden.
