Mushroom & Lentil Pate

Mushroom & Lentil Pate, great for a Christmas day starter or a alternative to a cheese board.

Ingredients –
1 cup of cooked green lentils
100g of mushrooms fried in 1 tbsp of vegan spread
1 small onion chopped and fried in 1 tbsp of vegan spread
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp of lemon juice
2 tsp of brown sugar
2 tbsp of garlic powder*
Pepper to taste

To Serve –
Toast and cornichons or use it next week along with last week’s cashew sauce to make your very own banh mi.

Method –
1. Prep all your ingredients, the onions and mushrooms don’t need to be cooked separately, I just did this to make it clearer what is going in the blender.
2. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You will need to stop it and scrape down the sides a few times to get the pate smooth.

* yes this is a lot of garlic, you don’t have to put this much in. I love garlic so I’m happy with a full 2 tbsp, if your less of a fan go for just 1 tbsp.
