Vegan Pate with Lentils – get ready for a new easy recipe. It combines the health benefits of plant-based cooking with the deliciousness of traditional comfort food. With only 5 ingredients and in 2 easy steps you are ready to enjoy!
I know and you know it, sometimes it can be tough when you live off plant based ingredients. Some foods, some specialties, which we might have liked or even enjoyed a lot are off limits.
I bet everyone of us has one of those dishes immediately come to mind. Some miss certain comfort foods, have a cheese craving and fall in love with my Easy Vegan Pimento Cheese.
For others – like me – suddenly remember that on occasion you enjoyed a certain condiment: a pate (or pâté as the French would say).
Traditional pate is a bomb. Made from meat and high in fat it naturally isn’t vegan. A big no go. But don’t despair, I will show you how to make a vegan pate with little effort.
My version is based on lentils and is absolutely creamy, healthy, delicious, satisfying, spreadable, remarkable, and full of flavor. As always, it is made from only 5 ingredients in 2 easy steps. Sounds like a winner, don’t you think, my friends?
When I served this recently at a small party, this Vegan Pate was devoured in no time – and no one noticed it was vegan. So here you have it! You can be sure it’s totally meat lover approved.
Does it tastes like “real” pate? Obviously not, because there is no meat in it. But some of my friends mentioned to me it tastes better than that. Are you ready to make this one together with me?
We start with the blender. Add lentils, olive oil, cashew butter, garlic, and give a good pinch of salt and pepper. Process until smooth.
While the blender is running heat a large skillet with a small splash of olive oil and briefly fry the onions at medium heat until they are slightly brown.
Transfer the smooth mixture from the blender to a bowl and fold in the onions. Now you are ready to enjoy!
