Mushroom-Burdock Pâté

December 18, 2017

Serve this delicious vegetarian Mushroom-Burdock Pâté with crackers or try it as a sandwich spread! Adding Burdock Root Powder to this Pâté adds nutritional substance! Burdock root is perhaps the primary food on the planet for detoxification. 

Inspired by Karen Wang Diggs’ recipe from her book Happy Foods.

  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 oz cremini mushrooms, stems removed, roughly chopped

  1. Heat a sauté pan on medium heat and add the coconut oil. Add onions and sauté for about one minute.
  2. Add garlic, mushrooms, Burdock Root Powder, thyme, sage and tamari.
  3. Cook for about 6 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are tender.
  4. When cooled slightly, transfer mixture to a food processor. Add walnuts, 1/3 cup olive oil and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. (Add a bit more olive oil if mixture seems to dry).
