Low Carb Meat-Free Mushroom PateThis easy Low Carb Meat-Free Mushroom Pate is a tasty vegetarian version of the French classic. It’s a great game day snack or addition to a cheese platter.

We’ve served ours with our Foccacia Bread (topped with parmesan and thyme) and our Marinated Bocconcini.

I have not included the jellied top in the recipe, but it is very easy to make! Reserve 100ml/3.5 ounces of the liquid used to soak the mushrooms, sprinkle in 1 teaspoon of gelatin and pour over the chilled pate. Let to set for 1 hour.
