  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 0.5 cup white wine
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions: Red lentil and mushroom pate

  • Boil about half a liter of lightly salted water, add the red lentils (no need to soak them for the night) and cook over medium-low heat, following the instructions on the box. Drain them and put aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in the pan. Add finely chopped garlic, onion cut into strips and the previously cleaned and sliced mushrooms.
  • Cook over medium high heat, stirring not too often, until the mushrooms get soft and lightly brown, approximately 6 – 7 minutes. Add the oregano, paprika, salt and pepper. Add the wine, stir and cook over medium high heat for 3 – 4 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and allow to cool down. Add lentils and vinegar. Adjust with salt and stir.
  • Blend the mixture with a hand blander or a stand mixer until it is creamy and spreadable. Adjust with more salt if necessary.
