1 In a bowl roughly mash lentils with a fork. In a food processor pulse cauliflower in two batches until it resembles crumbs.
2 Gently fry leek in oil until softened. In a bowl, mix together lentils, cauliflower, pumpkin, feta, eggs, panko crumbs and coriander. Add leeks and stir to combine.
3 Spray a large pan with oil and heat over a medium-low heat. Scoop heaped spoonfuls of fritter mix into pan and cook until golden. Flip and cook other side. Repeat with remaining mixture to make 8 fritters.
4 To make salsa, combine all ingredients and serve with fritters.
