- Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Spread cashews on a baking tray and bake for 3–4 minutes or until toasted. Finely chop.
- Heat half the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and carrot and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until tender.
- Meanwhile, place lentils in a food processor and process until coarsely chopped. Place lentils, onion mixture, toasted cashews, oats and breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Using hands, mix well to combine. Shape mixture into 4 patties. Place on a plate. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
