This month's recipe: Coarse Mushroom Paté

A vegetarian pate that is delicious on warm wholemeal toast


  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Lge onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1.5 kilo sliced mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1.5 teaspoon crushed rosemary

Sauté onions and garlic in oil until soft and transparent, add the mushrooms and all the seasonings.

Continue to cook slowly until the mushrooms begin to release their juices, remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Next add the stuffing mix and stir well.

Butter the inside of a 2 pint oven proof mould or 6 individual ramekins and place a piece of wax paper or parchment on the bottom. Pour in the mushroom pate and tamp down to remove any air bubbles.

Refrigerate for at least 24 hours prior to serving. To serve, remove the wax paper and blot off any surfaces juices before turning onto a platter.
