A great vegetarian pate that only takes 15 minutes to prepare. Great for spreading on little toast rounds or bread. The secret ingredient is a little touch of good quality balsamic vinegar.
This recipe makes a nice big batch, enough for a dinner party. If you want a more smooth, silky pate, add more olive oil.
If you don’t want to chop finely, you can serve the mushroom and onions as-is, right out of the pan.
1. Heat a large saute pan or frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add just 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and swirl to coat. Add the onions and saute until softened, about 2 minutes.
2. Add the sliced mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms and onions are browned, about 8 minutes. Makes sure you don’t burn the onion (you can keep the heat on low if you need to).
3. Add the balsamic vinegar and the parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Pour all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and chop very finely until almost like a paste. Taste and season with more salt if needed.
