1/2 cup red-orange lentils (dried) 90 g
4 tbsp sunflower seeds 30 g
1/2 onions, diced 100 g
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 tsp gingerroot, grated 3 g
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 23 mL
1 1/4 tsp curry powder 4 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to make the meatball mixture.


  1. Rinse and drain the lentils, put them in pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the lentils are very tender, about 20 min. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Sauté the onion, garlic, ginger and curry powder for 6-8 min, stirring from time to time. Set aside.
  3. Tip lentils, sunflower seeds and onion mixture into a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix the ingredients into a paste.
  4. Transfer the paste into a bowl and put in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours. Serve.


The paté can be kept in a closed container for a few days in the fridge.
