Vegan Mushroom Pâté

Vegan Pâté is quite simple to make. It’s basically sautéed mushrooms and shallots mixed with vegan ricotta cheese. Spread it over crackers or toasted bread, and you’ll have a light and flavorful appetizer.

Another way to enjoy this pâté is as a sandwich spread. Add this to a baguette with vegan meat and pickled veggies, and you will have a very satisfying Vegan Bánh Mì.

Ingredient Notes

Mushrooms – I usually use white button mushrooms and cremini (brown) mushrooms, but any type of mushrooms will work.

Shallots – if you don’t have shallots, regular white onions can be used.

Tofu – I use firm tofu (木綿豆腐). Extra-firm tofu would work too, but silken tofu has too much water so it would not be ideal for this recipe.

Cashews – soak raw cashews in water for several hours (or overnight). If you don’t have enough time to properly soak them, you could soak them in hot water for about 15 minutes.

Miso – miso adds “umami”, an added depth of flavor and savoriness to the ricotta cheese. I use white miso paste, but any type of miso will work.

Apple cider vinegar – this can be subbed with lemon juice.

Plant-based milk – I use oat milk, but as long as it is an unsweetened and unflavored kind, any type of milk will work.

How to Make Vegan Mushroom Pâté

A detailed recipe is in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but let me give you a quick overview of the process.

It’s a fairly simple process, and will only take you 20 minutes.

1. Sauté – heat olive oil in a frying pan and sauté mushrooms, shallots and garlic.

2. Blend – add all the ingredients for the vegan ricotta cheese to a food processor and blend.

3. Combine – add the sautéed mushrooms, shallots and garlic to the food processor, and pulse to combine with the ricotta cheese.

How to Serve and Store

Here are some of my favorite ways to serve Vegan Pâté.

  • spread over crackers or thinly sliced baguettes
  • use as a dip for veggie sticks
  • make a sandwich and use the pate in place of condiments

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
