Walnut Mushroom pate

yummy recipe I'm sharing with ya


This recipe is from a currently very popular cookbook called Veganomicon. This book is great if you like taking whole ingredients and turning them into yummy healthful dishes. It helps if you are vegan/vegetarian but I've snuck several recipes past some omnivores and they had no idea they were eating healthy vegan stuff.

Walnut mushroom pate

3 TBS olive oil
1 cup dices yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried tarragon
3/4 tsp. salt
freshly gound black pepper
1 pound cremini mushrooms
1 cup lightly toasted walnuts
3/4 cup cooked white beans
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
up to 1/4 cup broth

Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute for 5 minutes, then add garlic, thyme, salt tarragon, pepper, cook for another minute. Add the mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes or until soft.

While the mushrooms are cooking place the walnuts in a food processor and process until very fine.

Add mushrooms to walnuts, along with blasamic, beans and last tbsp. oil. Puree until smoothe, adding the broth 1 tbsp. at a time as needed. Pate should resemble a smoothe, thick paste. Store in airtight container, chill for at least one hour. Serve with crackers, crudites, on sandwiches or pitas!
