Lentil Pate Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
This recipe is okay. I more than doubled the water for cooking the lentils and they still didn't come out as soft I would have liked for this recipe. While the recipe doesn't use a ton, truffle oil is quite expensive. I'm not sure this recipe is worth the effort or expense, particularly for a someone who eats meat. It still gets 3 stars, because it doesn't taste all that bad. It's close to real pate, but different enough to feel like something is missing. *** Three years later*** This recipe has really grown on me. My vegetarian friends seem to like it quite a bit. I keep the ingredients on hand and it's fairly quick and easy to make when I want to bring a dish to a party. I have found that if you don't tell people it's lentils, word might get around that it's liver and it won't eat eaten - even by the nonvegetarians

I've made this before because I have a lot of food allergies and hummus is a wonderful, healthy snack I can eat. The problem: I hate chickpeas. So I've made "hummus" with lentils as this recipe says. I didn't use truffle oil, but the chili oil from Trader Joes. The spice gives it some kick. I love it!

This is actually surprisingly delicious. I had no problem cooking up my lentils (although they didn't get very tender, it's true. But I like them better that way) with the 2 cups of broth. The truffle oil is wonderful. This is my first time making lentils and I'm surprised at how much I like it. I would absolutely make this recipe again.

I didnt like this recipe at all. I do really like Hummous and other pate/dips, but this is very chalky and bland... even after adding more oil, water and seasoning. disappointed because I was planning to serve it tonight as an appetizer.

I used beef broth instead of chicken broth; not sure how much difference that made on the end product. It was okay, but not great. Just not flavorful enough.
