french lentil dijon spread

10 Aug

My 11-year-old proclaimed that this spread was “the best thing you’ve made all month, Mom!”  He might be right.  I’ve made 2 batches this week.  It is great with veggies as a dip or on crackers as a spread.   I even put it in a sandwich with lettuce, tomato and cucumber.  Very low PointsPlus value and lots of flavor!

French Lentil Dijon Spread

  • 2 Tbsp. pecans
  • 1 cup cooked French lentils
  • 3 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • water, if necessary
    Finely grind pecans in a food processor.  Add remaining ingredients (except water) and blend until smooth.  Use a little water to achieve your desired consistency.
    Makes 1 1/2 cups.
    Recipe from Feeding the Whole Family by Cynthia Lair.
