Lentil Chopped Liver by Gloria G.– They'll never know!
If ever a vegetarian recipe tasted and looked like the real thing, this one does.
1 1/2 cups green or brown lentils
1 cup walnuts, chopped finely
3 Tablespoons vegetable extra virgin olive oil
3 large onions, chopped, and sautéed until caramelized and browned
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped well
Cover raw lentils with water and soak overnight. Drain, cover with fresh water
Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
Put walnuts in food processor and process until a fine consistency. Remove to a bowl. (Be careful here- do not make nut butter)
Put drained lentils into food processor and process until desired consistency.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the mixture seems dry, add a bit more oil. Serve chilled or at room temperature on a bed of greens, or with challah, crackers or chips.
Serves about 8-as an appetizer
