Saute the onions and garlic until the onions are soft and translucent.
Add the mushrooms and saute until soft then season with black pepper.
Pour the mushroom mixture into to a blender with the herbs, spices and lentils and blend until the mixture is the texture of a pâté. You can also use a food processor or mash my hand for a rougher texture.
Scoop the pâté into a bowl and mix in the oats, then roll into small balls and press into patties in your hands. You should make between 8 and 12 balls depending on how big you want the sliders to be. You can pop them in the fridge until you are ready for them or cook them right away.
Rub your frying pan with a little oil and fry until each side is crisp and browned on the outside.
Serve in mini rolls with salad. Choose your favorite toppings.
