I have not yet tried this recipe but I just love the sound of it from the ingredients: lentils and nut butter and mushrooms! It sounds both nutritious and delicious! For some extra crunch, I'd be inclined to add some finely chopped nuts. I found this recipe on an English website and I am posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4, heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion and celery and brown lightly.
  2. Add the mushrooms and soften for 3-4 minutes; then remove a spoonful of the mushroom pieces and set aside.
  3. Add the lentils, stock and thyme, bring to the boil uncovered and simmer for 20 minutes or until the lentils have fallen apart and the liquid has reduced.
  4. Place the nut butter, garlic, bread and milk in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  5. Add the lemon juice and egg yolks and combine; add the lentil mixture, blend, then season well. Lastly stir the reserved mushrooms into the mixture.
  6. Turn the mixture into a 1.2 litre paté dish, stand in a roasting tin half-filled with boiling water, cover and cook for 50 minutes. Allow to cool before spooning from the dish.
