    Chez Alain's Note:

    This spread looks and tastes like Canadian Creton but it is totally vegetable. Will make a nice snack or lunch when spread on a pita bread or white bread toast. Can be frozen for up to 6 months. Nice alternative if you are watching your cholesterol.

      Very, very good. I added only 2 tbsp. soy sauce, so I didn't find it too salty at all. Next time I will grind the lentils a bit finer. Great recipe...thanks for posting.

      Different! Interesting! Very good! VERY salty! I liked it better with melba toast over the pita.
