Just a quick post to introduce you to a new recipe that I have tested this week: Lentil / Mushroom pâté. It makes a perfect starter served with a salad. Enjoy!

Ingredients (Pate)

200 grams of green lentils

500 grams of mushrooms

2 onions

5 garlic cloves

chopped persley (2 table spoons)

olive oil (2 table spoons)

a pinch of thyme

plain flour


  • Cook the lentils till tender
  • Chopped the onions and 1/2 of the mushrooms i.e. 250 grams
  • In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When warm, add the onions & the mushrooms (chopped and unchopped).
  • Mash the lentils with a fork and add it to the mushrooms and onions
  • Add the chopped garlic cloves, parsley, thyme and two table spoons of olive oil
  • Season with salt & pepper. Add some flour to obtain a thick dough.
  • Pour the dough into a tin and add some bread crumbs at the top
  • Bake it for 45 min. (180 degrees)
  • Serve it cold with a seasonal salad. Bon appetit!
