Rinse the lentils. Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the lentils, garlic, onion, and a little salt, and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender.

Place the mushrooms in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the oats, flax seed, maple syrup, thyme, fennel, and little more salt to the food processor and set aside until the lentils are ready.

Drain the lentil mixture to remove any excess water and add the drained mixture to the food processor. Pulse into a coarse paste. Form into patties.

Preheat oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes. Grease and line a baking sheet

Arrange the patties on the baking sheet. Drizzle a little olive oil on each patty. Cook until browned. (This may take about 10 to 12 minutes. Oven times may vary) Drizzle a little more oil if necessary halfway through the baking process. Flip and bake a little more if needed. Be careful when flipping and use a flat spatula while doing so; they are delicate.

Remove to a serving plate. Serve hot with buttered toast. Healthy and tasty breakfast is ready!


In case you don’t own an oven or don’t want to bake these patties, it can be easily shallow fried with little oil on a skillet or pan.

Here’s a delicious and healthy vegetarian “sausage” patty full of hearty and toothsome lentils and it has all the flavor we associate with breakfast sausage like thyme, black pepper, and fennel.

I thought making a tasty vegetarian sausage would be tricky or hard. But although these patties don’t have the exact same flavor or texture of a breakfast sausage, this recipe is definitely a winner.

These patties are great for those with food sensitivities. They’re nut-free and contain no animal products.
