Veggie pâté is a food often underestimated or not well-known. However, it contains healthy ingredients such as seeds and vegetables. Eaten in sandwich with a fruit salad and yogurt, it makes a delicious and nutritious meal.

This veggie pâté sandwich is perfect for hot summer days.

In the following sandwich, rye and alfalfa brings freshness. Althought you can buy these products in most supermarkets, you may also decide to make them yourself.

      Nice idea for a meatless sandwich. I've tried veggie pate sandwiches and burgers in restaurants, but have never made my own. Thanks for this recipe. It sounds great. I'll give it a go sometime :)
