Earth Day Paté

Earth Day Paté
The richest of the earth’s offerings mingle together for a simple yet elegant appetizer.

1 large sweet onion (peeled and thinly sliced)
1 large garlic clove (peeled and minced)
6 ounces fresh mushrooms (wiped clean and sliced thin)
1 splash balsamic vinegar (or to taste)
1/2 cup Organic Valley Salted Butter
6 large Organic Valley Grade A Large Brown Eggs (hard boiled and cooled, peeled and
quartered)
1 cup walnuts (raw)
1/2 cup almonds (raw)
1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
sea salt and white pepper (to taste)

In a heavy skillet over medium heat, saute onion, garlic, and mushrooms in butter with a
splash of balsamic vinegar. Saute until soft and almost golden.

In a food processor (fitted with the metal blade) pulse prepared eggs, walnuts, and
almonds about 5-7 times until thoroughly minced.

Add cooled mushroom mixture, tamari soy sauce, chili powder, sea salt, and pepper. Process
about 5-10 seconds to combine.

Transfer mixture into a beautiful serving bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and
refrigerate for 2-3 hours to let flavors mingle.

Prior to service, let paté sit for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Decorate with fresh herbs (watercress, parsley, tarragon, basil, etc.) and slivered
almonds.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve with fresh rustic breads, crackers, or fresh vegetables. Pairs well with chicken
breast, too.
