Coming at you today with a recipe of vegetarian mushroom pâté, which is as simple to make as to tweak depending the occasions: as side dish, as appetizer when spread on toasts or crackers, in a sandwich, or as a vegetarian alternative for Christmas dish… there are many possibilities! No need to make it overly complicated, and in case if you don’t have white beans at home, you can still go for a can of precooked ones, which will do the job too.

I’m always impressed everytime I make recipes of vegetarian patties or spreads, about how some ingredient or flavor combinations are perfectly imitating meaty versions, thanks to just one or two ingredients that’ll make the difference. If you like that kind of recipes, I recommend you to take a look at my recipe of chickpea patties with mushrooms & spinach, which is doing wonders in burgers, or simply as a side to replace the usual steak patty.

This vegetarian mushroom pâté can be kept a few days in the fridge. I used basic brown mushrooms in this version, but feel free to opt for chanterelles or cep mushrooms if you are lucky enough to have some!
