Herbed Mushroom Pate Recipe


Herbed Mushroom Pate Recipe
No need to eat chopped liver (ew!); try a vegetarian pate made from mushrooms and fresh herbs instead. Yum! Not sure what to do with pate? Spread it on bagels for a casual lazy breakfast, serve it with artisan bread or crackers for a party appetizer for a holiday or Christmas party. This herbed mushroom pate is vegetarian, vegan (if you use a vegan margarine) and cholesterol-free!


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • 2 pounds fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 tsp rosemary
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a large saucepan, heat the margarine and cook the onion for 5-6 minutes, until soft.

Add the mushroom and cook for another 8-10 minutes, until well cooked. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the remaining ingredients.

Transfer to a blender or food processor, and pulse until desired consistency is achieved.
