Lentil spread – a cheeky clean eating alternative to butter

Lentil Spread

A hit at any party, this lentil spread makes butter obsolete!  This protein-packed alternative tastes great on whole-grain breads, crackers, pitas and brown rice cakes.  We like to use it as a dip for crudités.



2 tbsp of raw unsalted walnuts

1 cup of cooked puy lentils

2 green onions, trimmed and coarsely chopped

2 cloves of garlic

1 tbsp of grainy mustard

1 – 2 tbsp of avocado oil (or other good-quality oil)

1 tbsp of low sodium soy sauce

Sea salt to taste

Freshly ground black pepper


How to make

  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Adjust consistency by starting with 1 tbsp of oil adding more if necessary.
  3. Cover and refrigerate.

It really is as simple as that…delicious too!
