Vegan Lentil Potato Croquettes

These Vegan Lentil Potato Croquettes are so easy to make, delicious and perfect for meal prep! They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Vegan, Gluten-Free, Oil-Free.

These croquettes are made with only two ingredients (not including spices) and are ready in 35 minutes. I love eating them with hummus but I bet they would make fantastic vegan “meatballs” too!

To make them, all you have to do is mash cooked potatoes and cooked green lentils in a bowl until smooth. Then, add spices if you want and roll the potato mixture into balls. Bake until golden brown and enjoy!

Vegan Lentil Potato Croquettes


  • 400 g potatoes, cooked
  • 150 g green lentils, cooked (2 cups)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 430F or 220C.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add potatoes and lentils and mash with a fork until there is no potato chunk left. Don’t worry if lentils are not completely mashed.
  3. Add curry powder, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper if using. Mash until everything is well combined.
  4. Take about 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll it between your palms. You should be able to form 17 balls. Place the balls on a lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crispy. Serve with hummus or with your favourite sauce.
