healthy_eatingWhen you think of healthy eating, pate probably isn’t the first thing to spring to mind.
But as with a lot of recipes on this site, you will find that if you make it yourself you can be sure it is nutritious, healthy and tasty too.
If you can’t bring yourself to try chicken liver pate, this might be a way to ease yourself into the pate world. No offal in sight!
This pate is so versatile. Try it:

  • On rice crackers
  • On toast
  • With some baby carrots to dip into it
  • Spread on top of a steak
  • As a filling for home made ravioli
  • With some roast chicken on a sandwich

  • 4 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Heat the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.
  • Cook the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.

  • Place your almonds into a food processor or blender and chop roughly.
  • Add the mushroom mix and process until it is smooth.
  • Add the cream cheese and the parsley and process again.
