Red lentil pate

Comments : 2 Posted in : Appetizers, Breakfast, Weight loss recipes on by : fleur Tags: , , , , ,


linte batuta

1 cup red lentils
1 bay leaf
2-4 cloves garlic, mashed (to taste)
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

For the topping:

2 (red) onions, finely sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tbsp. tomato puree/paste

Wash the lentils thoroughly  and cook them  in 2 1/2 cups water, together with the bay leaf. Drain but keep the moisture aside. Remove the bay leaf and blend/process until smooth.

Put the lentils back in the pan, on low heat, add the oil and garlic and “beat” it with a wooden spoon until it becomes foamy (if necessary add a little water from the lentils to get the desired consistency). Add  salt and pepper to taste  and transfer the lentils to a serving bowl.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and simmer the onions on medium heat until golden brown.  Add the tomato puree and mix well. Spread evenly over lentil pate.

    Iti multumesc Fleur pentru aceasta reteta minunata. Tocmai am incercat-o pentru prima data si recunosc ca marginile castronului nu le-am lins inca doar pentru ca plesnesc dupa ce am mancat unul intreg.
