Lentil Garlic Pâté Recipe

Lentil Garlic Pâté Recipes

Ingredients :

1 cup lentils

3-4 cups water

2 tbsp olive oil

6 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup chopped shallots

1 cup silken low fat tofu

1 tsp white pepper

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup finely chopped basil

Method :

Rinse lentils well and place in a heavy pan with water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until soft. Add water as needed. While lentils are cooking, heat oil in a medium skillet and sauté garlic and shallots briefly (about 2-3 minutes). Mash tofu in a medium bowl and stir in pepper and salt. Add garlic and shallots. Drain any excess water from lentils and add to tofu mixture. Purée until very smooth. Stir in basil and chill thoroughly to let flavors combine. Serve in a decorative bowl as a dip for pita wedges or raw, fresh vegetables.

This protein packed, low fat alternative to meat pates has a nutty, garlicky flavor that goes with everything from crackers to crudités.
