1 1/2 cup green or brown lentils (dried) 260 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
2 onions, chopped 400 g
2 eggs size large, boiled
3 tbsp mayonnaise 40 g
2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful.


  1. Cook the lentils in salted boiling water for ten minutes. Cool immediately in ice-cold water. Strain through a colander and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan and brown the onions.
  3. Coarsely chop hard-boiled eggs and put them in the food processor or blender. Add mayonnaise, lemon juice and parsley. Pulse.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients including salt and pepper and mix until desired consistency is achieved.
  5. Divide the preparation into small air-tight containers.


These vegetarian cretons can be stored up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
