Lentil Pecan Sandwich Filling

This high-protein sandwich filling has a good texture and spreads easily. The pecans and honey lend a sweet background note to the lentils.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Ingredients:

  • 1 c cooked lentils
  • 1/2 c pecan halves
  • 1 stalk celery, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 small red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Directions:

  1. Rinse lentils in a sieve. Squeeze out moisture by hand until only a lentil pulp remains. Place in food chopper or processor.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and pulse about 10 times, or until the texture is uniformly coarse, not pureed.
  3. Use in sandwiches, wraps, or scooped on salads. Store unused portion in refrigerator.
