Beat together with electric mixer for 2 minutes on medium speed. Fold in lentil puree.
In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into lentil puree mixture. Turn into pie shell.
Bake 40 minutes, or until knife inserted comes out clean. Remove and cool thoroughly. Refrigerate. Use a wet knife to slice pie into 12 wedges.

*To puree pulses, place cooked or rinsed and drained canned pulses into a food processor, add ΒΌ cup hot water for every 1 cup of cooked pulses, and puree until the mixture is smooth, adding more water in small amounts to reach desired consistency, similar to baby food, about 5 minutes. Scrape the bowl as needed. Unused puree can be frozen and kept for several months in the freezer.
