For YEARS I have been trying to score a good recipe for Veggie Pate.
But until now have always been unsuccessful! I have actually only tried a few because most seem to have some key ingredient that I find objectionable, like too much flour or too much white potato or something or other so I don’t even bother. Or the ones I have made, have been……okay…..but doesn’t taste like “the one”.
Years ago I went to this bridal shower / stagette type event. The Bride was a vegan so all of the food could accommodate her. Actually she and her husband to be were both vegans and so the wedding reception was completely vegan too. This was quite some time ago, so back in the day something like that was considered quite avant-garde!
But back to the shower. That was the first time I had ever tasted veggie pate of any kind. And as someone who LOVES stuff that you can put on bread or crackers, I was very intrigued and delighted. I didn’t care necessarily that it was vegan or vegetarian or whatever, I just thought that it tasted great!
I had asked the lady who made it if she might give me the recipe and she very pleasantly said “sure, sure……..” but to this day have never got it out of her. I hear from others that she is very protective of that recipe because it is her “signature” dish!
Well finally I found a recipe that works ! And tastes VERY close to that one I tasted so long ago!
( click here ) for that recipe.
The only changes I made was that I used rice flour ( cause that’s all I had that wasn’t wheat) AND I added a tbsp of poultry spice because I love that stuff. Other wise I followed it exactly and it came out perfect!
I have frozen some to eat later. I will let you know how it holds up.
