Walnut Lentil Pate ~ aka old school "Mock Chopped Liver"

Passed on to me via my Aunt Marilyn via Lois via….. Consider yourself now part of the family!

This is a vegetarian version of Chopped Liver-eww –that still sounds off putting, but anyways, that was a traditional appetizer at our family functions and it just brings back memories—pretty much food memories- of my Nana! Unlike her other dishes, Chopped Liver was one of the foods that basically threw me to switch teams! Hence begins my journey in becoming a vegetarian! This Pate’ is sooo sooo very delicious served as an appetizer with veggies or crackers or use as a spread in sandwiches. High protein.

Serving Size: 8

Prep Time: 30 minutes



½ cup lentils

¼ cup olive oil

½ cup walnuts

1 bullion cube

2 large onions, sliced

3 hard-boiled eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Cover lentils with water and cook 15-20 minutes until water is absorbed and lentils are soft. May have to add more water and cook a little longer if they are still hard.
  2. Sauté onions in half of the olive oil until very, very dark.
  3. Put everything in a food processor until held together and of the desired consistency.
  4. Cover, chill and serve
