MARCH: Lentil Walnut Pate

Ingredients:

2T butter
1 cup chopped onion
8 hard boiled eggs
4 cup toasted walnuts
1 cup of red lentils cooked in water
I cook these in water with an onion stuck with a few cloves and a carrot
Don’t ask me why? Must have read something somewhere.
1/3 cup of ketchup
1/2 to 2/3 cup of mayonnaise as needed
Salt and Pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a saute pan and cook the onions until soft and clear.
Transfer to a cuisinart and add the rest of the ingredients. Puree until smooth.

NON VEGETARIAN VERSION. The original recipe had one cup of sardines in tomato sauce instead of the ketchup and used brown lentils. I came up with this vegetarian option because it was prettier and so many of my clients wanted something hearty for their vegetarian guests.

I now serve this with rice crackers to keep my GF clients happy as well.
