I used to really like pate before seeing the light and becoming a vegan.  Subsequently, I needed to find a vegan pate.  After many experiments, I think this is the one that hits the mark and satisfies my need for pate. Lovely mushroom flavour and great firmness.  As a snack, I love to have this on toast. 


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 300 g  mushrooms, sliced  
  • 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 3 sun dried tomatoes 
  • A few olives
  • 2 tbsp of fresh basil, chopped for the end
  • 1 tsp coriander 
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • 1 tsp nooch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp pepper  


  • Frying pan 
  • Blender

  1. Sauté the onions, walnuts and garlic until the onions soften.

  2. Add in the mushrooms, salt, balsamic vinegar, paprika, coriander, nooch, olives and pepper and sauté for another 5 - 8 minutes. 

  3. Let the mushrooms cool first and add the chopped basil. Pulse in a blender with the sun dried tomatoes. Scrape the sides as needed until you reach a pâté texture.

  4. Press into a container then place in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.


Very tasty with toast. Really pleased with how it turned out.
