Cut the dried tomatoes into strips, chop the walnuts finely, drain the lentils from the brine. Place the cold mushrooms, tomatoes, walnuts, lentils, pepper, salt and truffle oil into a blender.

You can replace walnuts with pecans.
You can also use dry lentil grains to prepare the pâté. I recommend green lentils – the lentil grains should be soaked in cold water before cooking.
