  • Add all the ingredients to a powerful blender and puree until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Cook 3 to 5 minutes until it starts to thicken. (It will continue to thicken and set as it cools off)
  • Pour the pate mixture in a glass container and finish with a drizzle of olive oil over the top. Cover with a lid and efrigerate for a couple of hours or until completely set.
  • Remove the lid and place a small plate on top of the container. Carefully turn it upside down and give it a tap if needed for the pate to slide down on the plate. Alternatively serve out of the container.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs and serve with fresh crusty bread, tomatoes or cornichons.

  • What can you use instead of walnuts? Depending on the season roasted chestnuts and even hazelnuts will make a wonderful Christmas pate!
  • Can you make it nut-free? Sure you can, use a mix of sautéed mushrooms, onions and cooked lentils instead. It’s a nice combo but not quite as nice as the walnuts or chestnuts in my opinion, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
