Lentil-Walnut Spread

Makes about 2 1/2 cups; serves 10
Time 45 min
This delicious pâté-like spread is great to pack for picnics and road trips but is also elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, accompanied by country-style bread. And it’s vegan, so you’re sure to please everyone. Use canned or thawed frozen lentils in this recipe, or simmer 1/3 cup dried lentils in 2/3 cup water, covered, until tender and water has evaporated, about 30 minutes.

Method

Combine onions, oil, salt and pepper in a large skillet.

Set over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are wilted and softened, 7 to 8 minutes.

Cover, lower the heat and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are golden brown and caramelized, about 25 minutes more.

Stir in garlic and cook for 2 minutes more.

Transfer onions to a food processor and add lentils, walnuts, miso and vinegar.

Process until very smooth, 1 to 2 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the processor.

Transfer to a bowl and serve. Spread will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
