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

“Seitan can be an excellent alternative to red meat in many dishes, and when used in conjunction with the right spices and seasonings, can taste very similar. It’s also loaded with protein — that’s what it is, after all. Wheat protein.” “Hail seitan? Damn right — if you’re looking for an alternative to red meat”
