Végé pâté is a quebec staple food one of those things that you never think to make yourself. Every picnic i had this summer included this. It's great with veggies on crackers in sandwiches... needless to say it got expensive after a while. Buying pre-made goods is always more costly which is why i started to make it myself.
Those who know me know that i like japanese food a lot I cook it every week. I wanted to try to make a pâté with japanese inspiration!
Adding miso was an obvious choice that as well as soy sauce ginger and scallions. All things that i had in my kitchen and that i knew would be delicious as a spread.
A lot of végé pâté recipes call for whole wheat flour I've made it using that before and it's great. If you don't have oats you can use whole wheat flour instead. Although using oats as a substitute works great I've made it using that before and it's great. If you don't have oats you can use whole wheat flour instead. Although using oats as a substitute works great i always have a bucket-load of steel-cut oats lying around. I just throw it in my food processor until it gets a flour-like consistency.
While it isn't currently picnic season in Montreal i still make this regularly and you should too!
