My husband and I have a big breakfast each day. As it’s an important meal for us, I thought of new spreads we can enjoy and I came up with this Sweet Potato and Lentil Pate. I made lentil pate before, but it’s the first time I would use sweet potato too. It was a really great idea, as it’s delicious and it’s a nice way to add more veggies. The recipe is naturally vegan, healthy and filling. If you want it for breakfast, as I did, I would recommend preparing it the day before, as it’s yummy cold and you might not have the time to prepare it before going to work.
Ingredients for 4 servings:
– 100g dry lentil
– 2 sweet potatoes
– 4 spoons olive oil
– 1 tsp smoked paprika
– sea salt
– 1 tsp dried parsley
– 1 tsp dried basil
– black pepper
– 1 tsp onion flakes
Peel, wash and chop the sweet potatoes. Put them in boiling water and boil them until soft and tender. Check with a fork to see if they are done. Scoop the sweet potatoes from the water and put them in the food processor. Meanwhile, wash thoroughly the lentils. Put them in boiling water and boil them until they are tender. I boiled them less than it was mentioned on the packaging. Drain the lentils and toss them over the sweet potato.
Pour the oil and add all the spices and herbs. Blitz the pate in the food processor until it has the consistency of a smooth paste. Taste and see if it needs any extra salt, pepper or any of the other condiments. If you add more, blitz for a minute so it will be fully incorporated.
The Sweet Potato and Lentil Pate is ready to be served. I paired it with homemade seeded bread I made before. It’s really delicious.
I hope you enjoyed the recipe. Let me know if you’ll try it.
