Detox Day 2: The Hummus Understudy

Lentil Pate

You survived Day 1 and most of Day 2! You are rockin’ this detox like it’s your job! Your reward is a new recipe, or a reminder of a recipe. As much as you love the award-winning vegetable delivery vehicle of 2004, once in a while it’s sure nice to have an alternative. So, here it is from Skinny Dish. A pâté so zesty and brown (pâté is supposed to be brown, people), that it will have you saying ooh la la in no time! Shmear it on large veggie slices or rice crackers while detoxing.

Lentil Pâté
Makes 10 (¼-cup) servings
Prep time 10 minutes

Spread this tangy pâté on Sesame Melba Rounds, toasted baguette slices, or pipe it into hollowed-out cherry tomatoes or steamed and hollowed-out Brussels sprouts. It even works well as a sandwich spread. Heck, eat it right off the spoon for breakfast. You only live once!

1 (17.6-oz) pkg refrigerated Steamed Lentils, or 2 ½ cups cooked lentils
5 cloves garlic, peeled
12 large pitted black olives
3 Tbsp capers, with juice
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary (optional)
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

1 In a food processor or powerful blender, process all ingredients together until combination is a smooth paste (some chunks may remain).

2 Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
