Every once in a while we get the urge to try our luck by making a new kind of spread, which will add some more color to our breakfast table. This time, after returning from the city with a big jar of olives, my wife was the one that took the bull by the horns and made us a tasty spread out of the olives, and even dared and added sprouted lentils to it. The truth is, it was very tasty. The combination of the unique bitter taste of the olives with the fresh taste of the sprouted lentils is very interesting and special. Of course the taste has a lot to do with the quality of the olives and their variety. I would recommend to go ahead and experiment with different kinds of olives.
The Ingredients :
About half a cup of pitted olives
Half a cup of sprouted lentils (How and why)
Juice from half a lemon
Handful of sunflower seeds
The preparation is very easy. Just mix the olives with some parsley and chives in a mixer. Then add the lentils, lemon juice, sunflower seeds and some pepper and mix again, but just a bit so the lentils will still stay a bit meaty. Like I said, during breakfast with fresh bread or a nice warm toast it goes amazing. Enjoy!
