Vegan Walnut Mushroom Pate

User Rating 3.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


A vegetarian and vegan pate recipe made from mushrooms and walnuts for plenty of texture and flavor. Vegetarian pate is much healthier and lower in fat than the real thing. Serve your vegetarian and vegan walnut pate chilled with bread or crackers. This mushroom and nut pate also makes a good sandwich spread for a vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free sandwich.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 pound firm tofu, mashed
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


Sautee the mushrooms, onion and garlic in olive oil until the onions turn soft, about 5 minutes.

Put the mushrooms mixture and tofu in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

Add the walnuts, salt and pepper, and puree again until smooth.

Chill the vegetarian pate thoroughly before serving. Serve your pate with bread or crackers.
