vege pate

4 blocks — 60 minutes

Végé pâté is Quebec staple food. It's great with veggies, on crackers and in sandwiches. My recipe is grainy because of the use of rolled oats, but don't worry, it still holds itself well together.

Purchasing it pre-made can be expensive, and not all brands are good. Making your own is no trouble, and if frozen, it can keep for a long, long time.


A lot of végé pâté recipes call for whole wheat flour, we've made pâté with it before with great results. Using flour will result in a smoother pâté. If you don't have oats, you can use whole wheat flour, or other wholegrain flours instead.

It's also possible to use regular potatoes, or pumpkin instead of sweet potatoes.
