Mushroom Pâté on Crusty Artisan Bread

Traditional pâté is typically made with ground, cooked meat and fat minced or blended into a spreadable paste. This take on a mushroom version reduces the amount of saturated fat and showcases the earthy and velvety characteristics of these friendly fungi.

For the Pâté:

  • 4 ounces crimini mushrooms, diced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk, low fat/fat free
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt + 1/4 tsp pepper

For the Sandwich:

  • Slices of bread from any fresh artisan loaf
  • Mixed greens (baby kale and spinach)
  • Roasted red peppers, jarred
  • Thinly sliced onion


  1. Heat a medium sauté pan to medium heat and add butter. Sauté shallot, mushroom and garlic, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add vinegar and cook until soft, and until all liquid has evaporated.
  2. Add mushroom mixture to blender or food processor. Add milk and blend until puréed. Set aside. Using the same pan you used to cook the mushrooms, toast both sides of bread slices.
  3. Assemble your sandwich: spread the inside of each slice of bread with mushroom pâté. Layer greens, peppers and onions and top with remaining bread slice.
