Pâtés: Lentil Walnut & Sage Yam


I love vegan pates – they are great in sandwiches, on crackers, pizza, with veggie sticks, you name it. Here I am sharing two very different pate recipes. The first is my go-to vegan pate. It has a great ‘stuffing’ like flavour from all the herbs and is a real crowd pleaser. I love it with avocado and mustard, such a tasty snack.

The second pate is also delicious and can be whipped up in minutes- no baking required and if you like, you can use canned lentils. It has a wonderfully fine texture that even a stickler for traditional pate will have a hard time finding fault with.

Sage & Yam

Print it Here

2 Cups Grated Yam
2 Cups Grated Carrot
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds (Roughly Ground)
1/2 Cup Grated Onion
1 Cup Nutritional Yeast (flaked)
2 Cloves Garlic (Grated)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 Tbsp. Dried Thyme
1 tsp Dried Sage
4 Tbsp. Ground Flax
4 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Water

Procedure:

Begin by grinding the sunflower seeds until they are fairly small, but some texture remains (a blend of fine with some small pieces is ideal). Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl, mixing well until fully combined. Place in a greased pie pan and bake at 220 C (425 F) for 50-70 minutes – or until the top is crisp and brown and the yam in the centre is cooked.

Lentil Walnut

 

2 Cups Cooked Lentils (I used black lentils, but puy, or even green lentils should work) 
1 Cup Walnuts (toasted)
2  Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
2 Cloves Garlic
1 Rounded Tbsp. Miso
2 tsp Tamari
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Curry Powder
1/4 Cup water

Procedure:

Combine all but the water in a food processor and puree. Slowly add the water and puree until smooth. Taste and adjust for seasoning.

    Hi, I love your blog and the Lentil Walnut pate looks delicious! But you've missed out on walnuts in the ingredients list? I'd love to know how much so I can make this for Christmas!

    Oh my goodness! Thanks for catching that! I have this wonky 12 year old laptop which sometimes likes to mysteriously erase things! I updated the ingredients list so it is accurate! Take care, Sophie <3

    Thanks! I prefer it cold. The pate sets up a bit and the flavours come out better.
