  1. In a pan, saute your onion and garlic.

  3. Now, to the blender, place half of the nuts, half of the lentils, and half of the kidney beans, along with the spices, oats, soy sauce, and tomato puree.
  4. Once a paste has formed (not too smooth), add in the rest of the nuts, pulses, and onion and garlic mixture and pulse until you have a good consistency, but still with some chunks.
  5. Fold through the carrots and cranberries.
