Hazelnut Pate with Sesame Toast

1 Mar

We cooked this for our Valentines Day Pop-up Restaurant. It went down a treat!

Ingredients:

For the pate: one large onion (finely chopped), 2-3 sticks of celery (fine chopped), olive oil, 2-3 slices of wholemeal bread (crumbled up), 2 stock cubes / or 2tsp bullion powder, 350g mushrooms (sliced), bunch of parsley (fine chopped), I head of garlic (roughly chopped), 1 tbsp marmite/yeast extract, 300g toasted hazelnuts, salt and pepper to taste

For the toast: 2 slices of wholemeal bread per person, vegan margarine, sesame seeds

Two slices of sesame toast (cut into triangles) with 2 dollops of hazelnut pate

Hazelnut Pate with Sesame Toast

Method: Gently sweat down the onion, celery and garlic in a largish pot with a generous amount of olive oil. When the onions are clear, add the mushrooms, stock powder, and hazelnuts. Once the mushrooms have softened and start to get juicy, crumble in the bread, and add in the chopped parsley and yeast extract. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste – be really generous with the salt, it makes a huge difference. Pop the mixture in a blender and blend smooth.

To make the sesame toast, place your bread in the toaster or under the grill as usual, then thickly spread one side with butter. Cover the buttered surface of the toast with a coating of sesame seeds. Cut into triangles and serve with the pate.

Again, we didnt have a picture of us with the food, so here is a lovely pic of Luke!

    Just caught the channel 4 documentary on your dinner parties. Just wanted to say good for you guys! Although one thing that does concern me is possibility of burning ones buys whilst cooking! =D x

    I think this is a great idea and a lovely site, I wish I was brave enough to do something like this. This is the first time I’ve been on here but as someone who has a really bad diet all this healthy food looks delicious. And whoever Luke is, (the one with Love Yr Body on his stomach) is really attractive, thought you should know!;)
