“A 'pate' made out of lentils, flavored with truffle oil. Tastes just like real pate!” - by Cathi from NJ
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Boil the lentils in broth in a covered pan until the lentils are soft and all the broth has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool.
- Place lentils in a food processor. Pour in olive oil and truffle oil, and pulse until almost smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add additional truffle oil if desired. Pulse to preferred thickness and consistency. If too thick, pour in a few teaspoons of water or broth to thin.

It's close to real pate, but different enough to feel like something is missing. *** Three years later*** This recipe has really grown on me. My vegetarian friends seem to like it quite a bit. I keep the ingredients on hand and it's fairly quick and easy to make when I want to bring a dish to a party. I have found that if you don't tell people it's lentils, word might get around that it's liver and it won't eat eaten - even by the nonvegetarians"
"I've made this before because I have a lot of food allergies and hummus is a wonderful, healthy snack I can eat. The problem: I hate chickpeas. So I've made "hummus" with lentils as this recipe says. ..." See moreI didn't use truffle oil, but the chili oil from Trader Joes. The spice gives it some kick. I love it! "
"This is actually surprisingly delicious. I had no problem cooking up my lentils (although they didn't get very tender, it's true. But I like them better that way) with the 2 cups of broth. The truffle..." See more oil is wonderful. This is my first time making lentils and I'm surprised at how much I like it. I would absolutely make this recipe again. "
