Tofu-Walnut Pâté

This quick and easy recipe makes a tasty vegan version of pâté, which is just a fancy way of saying chopped liver. Serve as a dip or spread on bread to make a sandwich.

Yield 6-8 servings
Time 20 minutes to prepare, plus 4 hours to chill
  • frying pan
  • wooden spoon
  • blender or food processor
  • rubber spatula
  • bowl
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 3 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 can (15 oz) green peas, drained
  • ¾ c walnuts, chopped
  • 4 oz firm tofu, cubed
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • salt
  • pepper
Directions Heat oil, add onions, and sauté until very tender and brown. Let cool.

Blend all ingredients on low speed, scraping down sides as needed, until just slightly chunky. Transfer to bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least four hours.

Serve with bread, crackers, or crudités.
