A twist on the traditional pate that is made with liver, this mushroom pate is a wonderful vegan/vegetarian option for your next get-together.
Pâté is such a fancy name for liver, isn’t it? I’m not a fan of liver, I do like the taste of a good pate. I recently had the opportunity to try out a sample of mushroom pate at a local farmer’s market, and I was amazed at how similar in taste to the real stuff. I knew there had to be a way to make this at home.
I “googled” mushroom pate and was surprised to find that there were quite a few variations. Why had I, a mushroom lover not heard of this before? Each recipe that I found had their own twist. I tried a little bit of this and a little bit that and after a few attempts, I came up with my own tasty version.
This recipe is easy to make with only 10 ingredients. It’s a delicious, healthy vegetarian way to enjoy pate and the numerous health benefits of mushrooms. Serve it along with a vegetable platter, on toast, crackers or as a sandwich spread.
