Mushroom Pate (Vegan)

Submitted by: STERESEM

Introduction

a lovely & delicious appetizer at your next gathering.

*This recipe is really only a guideline, make something fabulous out of it! Instead of cumin, add a basil, whisper of EVOO, and chopped pine nuts for a pesto feel, or perhaps a bit of sundried tomato, and feta, and serve with steamed artichokes... have fun.
