Lowfat cocoa, Veggies Unite! recipes

Hi, all,

Wonderslim makes a reduced fat cocoa.  I've seen it in the King Arthur flour
catalog and have avoided ordering it because it would seriously increase the
volume of my baking, lol!

Also, I visit the Veggies Unite! site regularly and sometimes run across
recipes that don't call for 1/4 cup of oil or shortening, so here you go...

Kirmizi Mercimek Koftesi (Red Lentil Burgers)

1 cup red lentils 
1.5 cups hot water 
1 vegetable bouillion cube 
1/4 cup fresh, chopped parsley 
3 cloves garlic, minced 
1 large onion, finely minced 
1 tablespoon cumin 
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper 
corn flour for binding 
cooking spray or oil 
Boil the lentils with the bouillion and water. When the lentils are cooked,
all the water should be absorbed. If the lentils are watery, let them sit to
absorb the rest of the moisture. When the lentils are cooked and relatively
cooled, add the parsley, garlic, onion, and spices. If the mixture is watery,
add some corn flour to bind the ingredients. Shape the lentils into patties
and broil in oven or fry in skillet. Garnish the lentil 'kofte' like you would
a burger.
