Lentils pâté (liver pâté substitute - vegan)

Submitted by: 65TARGET

Introduction

Tastes just like liver pâté, only it's vegan and it has a lot less calories. You can serve it as a dip (goes great with red peppers and cucumbers) or as a spread, on crackers or bread. Nobody will guess it's not liver pâté, anyway! Unless you tell them. Tastes just like liver pâté, only it's vegan and it has a lot less calories.

Ingredients

    * Green lentils, 100 grams
    * Onions, raw, 1 large, chopped
    * Garlic, 2 clove
    * Sunflower Oil, 2 tbsp
    * Pepper, black, 1 tsp
    * All kinds of seasonings (dried vegetable seasonings)
    * Salt

Directions

NOTE: Choose green lentils for this recipe! Red lentils tend to turn to puree while boiling, while green lentils stay firmer.

First, soak the lentils in water for 2 hours or so or during the night. Then, boil them in enough water (about 1 liter) until they are done (they soften enough to be mashed).

In the meantime, saute half the onion in 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil, until the onion bits start to look translucent.

Place the rest of the onion, the garlic and all the other ingredients in a blender bowl and add the sauteed onion.

Rinse the lentils, wash with cold water while rinsing until they get cold enough and add them to the blender bowl. Start the blender and turn it off when the mixture is creamy and brownish, just like liver pâté. If the mixture climbs on the blender walls, just stop the blender and scrap it off with a spoon and start again until done.
