Red Lentil Spread Recipe

Red Lentil Spread Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 1 pot

225 g/8 oz red lentils
50 g/2 oz Cheddar cheese, diced

50 g/2 oz soft wholemeal breadcrumbs
50 g/2 oz butter or margarine

A few drops of lemon juice
Pinch of cayenne
Pinch of ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Vegetable fat, melted


Boil the lentils in water until soft. Drain, if necessary, and cool them slightly, then process with the cheese, bread-crumbs and butter or margarine. Work in a few drops of lemon juice, the cayenne and cumin and a little salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the flavorings if necessary. Pack the spread into a bowl, level the top and run a little melted vegetable fat over the top to prevent it drying out. Use within 48 hours or freeze.
