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

Method:

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.
