Tip of Stefano:

Make pâté from seitan: a delicious, low-carb vegetarian recipe

People looking for a vegetarian alternative can make pâté using something other than meat. Making vegetarian pâté is not much harder than making ordinary pâté. It’s important to use a good base ingredient. In this recipe, we use seitan as the base of our pâté. By adding yummy seasonings to the seitan you can make the pâté even more tasty and add your own special twist to the recipe. After adding all your favourite seasonings to your pâté, remember to leave the pâté to rest – don’t serve it immediately. By leaving the pâté to rest overnight, you give the flavours a chance to blend together, so that your seasonings can really come into their own. To store your pâté, it’s best to cover it with a layer of oil. This keeps out bacteria and extends the shelf life of the pâté. Of course, it’s also essential to put your pâté in a clean jar. If it stays chilled, it should keep for several days. Delicious for tapas and appetisers

Stefano describes himself as colourful, loud, a vegan, a friend, a discoverer, a digital nomad and straightforward.Stefano changed tack and started to eat and live a healthy vegan lifestyle His life took a wholly different course when he became very ill. At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.
