Porcini & Lentil Pate


In a food processor, process the garlic, then add half the lentils (set aside the other half), then add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.

Now add the remaining lentils, and process for a few seconds, just to incorporate them, but be sure to leave the mixture with a little bit of texture.  The result should be a thick spread.

Pour a little oil on top, garnish with more sage, and refrigerate overnight. Serve with bread or crackers.
