Organic Foods have a full flavour

Mushroom Pate


250g of button or brown mushrooms

1 large onion

1 clove of garlic

2ml of mixed herbs

2ml of parsley

15 - 20ml of Olive or

About 15ml of chickpea flour

And 25ml of filtered water

Non-iodated sea salt and

2ml of crushed peppercorns to taste

By using all fresh organic ingredients, you will find that the subtle flavours of the ingredients will make this an excellent party dip, or cocktail snack.

How to go about the making of the pate


Wash and clean the mushrooms. Cut into medium sized slices.

Dice the onion into very small cubes

Place a saucepan with ΒΌ cup filtered water in it. Bring the saucepan to the boil.

Add the onions and cook them until transparent, then reduce the heat to

a simmer, chop the garlic and add it to the onions, then add the mushrooms and let it simmer, with the lid off, so that some of the combined juices will be left behind and the excess liquid will evaporate.

Mix up the chickpea flour with the crushed peppercorns and the filtered water then slowly add the mixture to the saucepan so as to form a very thick mixture.

Transfer the contents of the frying pan to a blender or liquidizer, and blend it until smooth and firm.

Transfer to a glass bowl and leave to cool, cover and place in the refrigerator.

Serve with: - any party dip type chips as in the hubs links below.
