Vegan Paté

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

This is a absolutely delicious  vegetarian and vegan pate for those who prefer foods with no face.

Ingredients:

1 celery stalk, grated

2/3 cup fresh carrots, grated

1 potato, raw, grated

4 green onions, thinly sliced

1 tsp basil, or more to taste

1 tsp sage, or more to taste, ground

1-1/2 cups warm water

1 tsp thyme, or more to taste

1/2 cup whole grain flour

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed and mashed

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350?F. Mix all ingredients together. Pour into a 9×9 in. pan. It might look a little soupy, but that’s all right. Bake 1 hour plus 15-20 minutes until golden brown. The top will be firm, but inside will still be liquid. This is fine, as it cools to a paté-like consistency. Refrigerate and serve cold. Use on crackers, or as a spread for sandwiches.
