Ingredients to make Creamy (Dairy Free!) Mushroom Pâté
• 250g or 2 1/2 cups of champignons (brown if available), sliced
• 50g or 1/2 scant cup of cashews
• 1 small onion
• 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
• 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
• Salt and Pepper to taste
Roast cashews in a dry pan over medium heat until golden brown. You could also do this in the oven: 10 minutes at 180 C / 360 F.
Finely mince onion and add to coconut oil over medium heat. Fry until translucent.
Set aside onions and add sliced mushrooms to frying pan. Fry until golden brown on both sides. (Don’t crowd them: you want them fried, not cooked.)
Put cashews in food processor and mix until finely ground. Add other ingredients (onions, mushrooms, parsley, salt, pepper) and mix until smooth.
