Need a pretty way to make sure they eat their vegetables? Vegetable Pâté will make them feel fancy too! The colorful, flavorful layers bring the bounty of the garden to your table.
In the evening, I like to relax. And what I enjoy most, for example, is searching for recipe ideas for our Great 8 dinners. Time to figure out a Vegetable Pâté recipe! I’m one happy gal when my task for the next Great 8 dinner involves vegetables. So…Anna and Vince, Vegetable Pâté, huh? How fun is this! Merci! I’m ready! Let’s go! Let the fun begin! I went to Manassero Farms the day before, to find all of the vegetables I needed. As a result, they had everything! They always do!
Vegetable Pâté doesn’t have to just be considered an appetizer, in fact when served at brunch with slices of Anna’s French Bread, it makes for a Gr8 early afternoon meal. When enjoyed as a light lunch, for example, it is delicious with her Minted Cucumber Salad. The idea of creating Vegetable Pâté reminds me of coming up with a color palette. The vegetables you choose are the “paints”!
Here’s where the artistry comes in! My favorite thing! Which colors should I use here? I’m thinking carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach and leeks. I love these together. Not only because of the colors, but because the flavors combined are perfect together.
Being in the craft industry and the kitchen on a daily basis (my 2 favorite places to be!) the details of this dish combine the two! From creating the thyme sprig “decor” on the parchment to layering the colors…this is SO up my alley! A delicious work of art. Certainly the finished dish is the masterpiece.
