Mushroom And Walnut Pâté
Written by McDonald, T. | Date 26th of November 2021
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
|Fry the mushrooms and walnuts.|
|Press into a container |
Sauté the onions, walnuts and garlic until the onions soften.
Add in the mushrooms, salt, balsamic vinegar, paprika, coriander, nooch, olives and pepper and sauté for another 5 - 8 minutes.
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.
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.
