Pate is one of those fancy foods it seems one will never eat again after going vegan. When I discovered something called Faux Gras, a vegan version made from lentils and walnuts, in the health food store, I was hooked, but deterred from buying it frequently as a tiny container is about 6 bucks. One day after making too many lentils, I invented this extremely simple recipe and discovered I could make an equally delicious version for pennies at home! This scrumptious pate is great with crackers, bread, raw veggies, or apple slices. Bon appetit!
4 cups cooked lentils w bay leaf + garlic
2 cups walnuts
Juice of 2
1 package of dry miso
Splash vinegar (apple cider or balsamic)
Splash tamari or soy sauce
Blend on high for about 5 min. Pate!
