Easy, light, flavourful, nutritious, packed with umami flavour. Our Mushroom Pâté is a real treat and a perfect appetiser. Nutritional Yeast is high in B vitamins and folate, making it an important resource for people who follow a plant-based diet.

1. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and dried oregano, and whisk.

2. Add chopped mushrooms and let them marinate for 5 min.

3. Meanwhile, in a large pan heat, olive oil over medium-high heat add chopped onions, garlic and cook for about 4 minutes.

4. Then add sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and broth to the onion mixture.

5. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins.

6. Meanwhile, to a food processor, add sunflower seeds, cornstarch, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and smoked pepper.

7. Blend until you end up with a paste-like consistency.

8. Add cooked mushroom mixture to the food processor.

9. Add your fresh oregano.

10. Pulse to combine with the paste, about 3-4 times if you want a chunky pate, or turn it on fully for a smooth pate.

11. Transfer your vegan pâté to a container and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.

12. While eating, definitely add some more nutritional yeast flakes on top for that ultimate cheese flavour.
