YIELD: 4-6




  • Chop up the onions in a food processor. I like mine super-fine for this.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan, and let the onions cook for a VERY long time, about an hour, until they're very brown.
  • While the onions are cooking, cook the lentils. Lightly salt about a quart of water and soak the lentils for about 20-25 minutes until soft but not too soft.
  • Grind the walnuts in a food processor until finely ground, but not hard enough to make the oils separate.
  • Add the onions, and all the olive oil they sauteed inches Pulse a few times.
  • Add the lentils and sea salt, pepper, and paprika and pulse until desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve with rice crackers, celery, and carrot sticks or other goodies good for dipping.
