Red Lentil Creamy Pâté

This is a high protein, low fat and low calorie vegan/vegetarian red lentil pâté recipe. Give it a try! 

I wanted to make this recipe for a while now. I read about a red  lentils pâté recipe on a forum and decided to give it a try but make it in my own way. I never follow a recipe step by step. Usually, I just see the photo, figure out the ingredients from the photo and then I just make it . No directions needed. Except when I bake, that’s when I have to follow the exact directions and that’s why I don’t like baking very much. 🙂 That’s why, this red lentil creamy pâté recipe was perfect!

This red lentils pâté turned out to be delicious!!! And it looks good too doesn’t it? I added a “secret” ingredient which gives it such a lovely color.  It can be both vegan and vegetarian. You can add butter or oil, depending on which one you prefer. I like butter a lot! Don’t eat it often at all but I always add it in mashed potatoes. It’s my golden rule! I recommend you to use butter for this recipe. Not much, just about 1 tsp (or half a centimeter, thin slice) does the trick.

This red lentil pâté will impress your guests!
