Lentils on My Bread

We needed something filling with the Pumpkin Soup. Slice of bread goes well with soup, so some kind of spread was best. We didn’t have chick peas or tahini, so hummus was out of question. We did have sun dried tomatoes and lentils, and I whipped up this spread when the soup was boiling on the stove. The soup was light, but with rye bread and lentil spread it was a filling meal.
