Baked mushroom and lentil paté

This oven-baked mushroom and lentil paté is easy, fast, healthy and soooo good. It is a valid alternative for a classic baked paté for those who do not eat meat for health reasons or for personal food choices. This paté is dense, soft and rich in bold flavors such as champignon mushrooms, lentils and various spices such as paprika, oregano and sage. Perfect to be eaten both hot and cold. Excellent accompanied by a fresh and light salad or a side dish of hot vegetables such as Sicilian caponata or peperonata.

Instructions baked mushroom and lentil paté

Baking your paté

  • Pour the mixture into a rectangular (me 13 x 24 cm) baking pan covered with baking paper. Flatten the surface with a spoon and bake in a preheated static oven at 180 °C for about 45 minutes (10 more minutes if you prefer your paté to be more dry).
  • Remove from the oven, let it cool down slightly and remove it from the pan (otherwise it becomes too soft due to the condensation that creates inside the pan) and serve both hot and cold. It becomes easier to cut the paté once it becomes completely cold. It can be heated in a frying pan or it can be directly spread over a crispy bruschetta.
