This light and lovely torte is gluten-free, thanks to almond flour and lentil purée. The addition of orange and chocolate is a classic and delicious combination. Fancy enough for dinner parties, yet easy enough to prepare on a weeknight too.
*Lentil Puree Place cooked, or rinsed & drained canned lentils into a food processor. For every 1 cup (250 mL) of lentils, add ¼ cup (60 mL) water. Blend to make a smooth puree with a consistency resembling canned pumpkin.
