Faux Gras, Rich, and Earthy Spread


This delicious treat spread made of lentils and mushrooms is our absolute favorite. It is the most astonishing vegan faux gras, taste, and texture-wise. Definitely worth keeping this in the rotation. Thanks to ”Bosh.tv” for this amazing recipe.


2 tbsp olive oil
1 shallot
Pinch of salt
2 cloves garlic
18 button mushrooms
2 tsp rosemary
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp sage
2 tbsp cognac
400g cooked lentils
150g toasted walnuts
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp beetroot puree


Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan.

Roughly chop the shallot and add to the pan. Add a pinch of salt and cook the onions until they are translucent.

Roughly chop the garlic cloves and add to the pan. Cook this off and add the chopped button mushrooms. Stir until everything is well cooked. Add the rosemary, thyme, sage, and cognac.

Add the contents of the frying pan to a food processor along with the lentils, walnuts and soy sauce. Pulse the mixture until combined then add in the beetroot puree. Process until almost smooth, add an extra splash of cognac if needed.

Transfer the mixture to a jar, adding on a thin layer of dairy-free butter on the top (optional). Refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Best served with good quality bread.
