Gluten Free Cracker Option
These Mary's Organic Crackers are the crackers pictured in my veggie pate photo above. I really do like them. They got a few negative reviews I noticed. I guess to each their own. Maybe they aren't perfect for every context, but I liked them with my veggie pate! Anyhow, the one downside is they are a bit pricey for the amount you get. I only buy them sometimes because of that, but still, I will buy them again in the future.
What is Veggie Pate?
Veggie Pate is a spread or dip made with vegetables and other plant-based ingredients. It is a delicious and nutritious alternative to traditional meat pate, and it can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. There are store bought versions but I have yet to find one that is worth spending any money on. This veggie pate recipe is simple, delicious, and something I make several times a year.
My Veggie Pate Recipe Notes
I really love this veggie pate, and pretty sure you will too. The base is made from almonds, sunflower seeds, potato, onion, carrot, nutritional yeast and a few other ingredients. Everything gets pureed in a food processer then transferred into a loaf pan and baked in the oven. You can serve it with crackers and your favourite condiments (I went with a store bought beet and onion jam which was epic) or tuck it into a sandwich or wrap. Seriously delicious. If you are planning a veggie charcuterie board don't skip this pate!!!
Veggie Pate Sandwich
The photo below is just an example of how I eat the pate in a sandwich. I think you could try to make an elevated version with fancy jams, greens, pickles and whatever else. The photo below is kind of a comfort food version that I have made so many times. I layered the veggie pate on a toasted ciabatta bun with greens, sprouts, a slice of vegan cheese, tomato, dill pickles, red onion, mayo & mustard. Not fancy, but really good. I hope you try this veggie pate and enjoy it as much as I do. I love having it in my repertoire.

I can't wait to try your vegan paté recipe. I'm from Quebec and support my local farmers and buy my fresh garlic from them each year. I've noticed fresh, juicy garlic from Quebec is much stronger and more flavourful than anything store bought. So if I'm making a recipe seen on the internet or somewhere, I often half large amounts of garlic, not to overpower the recipe. But you are in PEI so I'm wondering if you have beautiful, flavourful garlic locally grown also. We love garlic, and am wondering if I should reduce 5 cloves to 3 or put all 5 in? Of course size matters (LOL) so let's say we using medium size garlic. Thanks for your thoughts :)

Hi Valerie!!! Thanks for the comment!!! I totally get what you mean. I personally LOVE garlic. If a recipe says 3 I'll put 8 haha. Size does matter LOL. I think I would go for it. I haven't made this in awhile but I don't ever remember it being super garlicky anyway. 5 cloves doesn't seem like a lot for something the size of a loaf pan in my mind!!! But if you were worried about it I think it would be tasty with less too. Fyi, I sometimes puree the pate in my food processor a 2nd time, after it's cooked and cooled. I'll pack it in cute little jars and put it on a fun snack board with breads and olives and whatever else. I'll also have to make it again soon to update the recipe in that way. Let me know how you make out! Now I'm craving pate!! I know it's very much a thing in Quebec one of my friends introduced me to a product she loved from there and I had to try making it and this is the result. Enjoy!!!💜🌟
