Vegan and Gluten-Free Mushroom Lentil Pâté Recipe

This tasty vegan mushroom lentil pâté is really delicious on bread or crackers. Serve it as an appetizer with cornichons, gherkins and/or pickled onions.

I have never been a fan of meat pâtés as I find them too greasy. This low-fat alternative is made from lentils and mushrooms. I added liquid smoke (which you can find in supermarkets) to add some extra flavour and umami depth.

This vegan pâté is a versatile recipe which you can make whether you are planning for a picnic, looking to impress your dinner party friends, or simply want to increase your repertoire of meat-free sandwich fillings. It is also ideal for buffets and entertaining.

Last but not least, it is also kid-friendly (you can skip the Marsala wine if you like, I don’t) and both my children have approved it and ask for it over and over again.
