This is the perfect party food plus it’s good for you!
Did you know that walnuts, which even look like little brains, are really good for your brain function? Yep, true. The Omega-3 fatty acids, among other nutrients, support good brain health and with dementia a growing public health threat, we need all the healthy brains we can get.
This walnut-lentil pate, which even meat lovers will praise, makes brain food a delicious treat all year-round and is yet another recipe that makes use of lentils – truly one of the best all around foods for versatility. We love it for holiday parties and so do our guests. This makes about six cups, which can be chilled in smaller dishes and replaced as needed.
You will need to make this at least 4 hours before serving, preferably longer (overnight or all day is ideal) to allow it time to set and chill. Serve with warm crusty bread, crackers, pickles, veggie sticks or try it in a sandwich with lettuce and tomato.
Enjoy with good company, a glass of your favorite beverage and some pickled vegetables for a delicious and nourishing treat!
