Vegetable Pate Recipe

Recipe needed for vegetable pate. Years ago, such recipe was in The Virginian-Pilot newspaper (Tidewater, VA). It contained no meat, but was the color of liver pate and tasted exactly like it. Scrumptious! Have searched in vain. It was made in a blender (before the days of food processors), but a processor would work even better.

All of these look pretty yummy. I'm wondering however if it may have had beans in it, like black beans to look like liver pate:

Vegetable Pate

Tricolor Vegetable Pate

Roasted Eggplant and Vegetable Pate

Vegetable Pate with Velvet Sauce

This is from Dr. Weils website. I made it at Christmas time last year, and it was soooo yummy!

Eggplant-Walnut Paté

Traditional patés are often made from high-fat meats and liver. They can be delicious and quite elegant, but less than nutritious. This vegetarian version is sophisticated, filled with flavor, and healthful. Enjoy it on a special occasion or as an everyday spread with whole-grain crackers.

2. While the eggplant is baking, grind the walnuts in a food processor until very fine, and set aside.

3. Remove the eggplant from oven, slash to let steam escape, drain off any liquid, and scrape the pulp into a food processor with the ginger root, garlic and olive oil. Process until smooth.

4. Add the ground walnuts and allspice, and process until smooth.

5. Season to taste with the salt, and hot pepper sauce. Spoon into a small loaf dish and chill several hours or until firm.
