Vegan Faux Gras

For someone with introverted tendencies, I love a good holiday party. Getting dressed up and drinking champagne under the glow of twinkle lights is hard to resist, and if the party in question has good food, I might even stay until the end! If you’re hosting this year, or attending a holiday soiree and looking to contribute something worthwhile, can I suggest vegan faux gras as the perfect hors d’oeuvre for hungry guests? It’s unexpected, high brow, and completely delicious (and is totally awesome as a leftover – my favorite application being spread on a banh mi sandwich).

You can also call this recipe by its alias, Lentil Walnut Porcini Pate. It’s all at once savory, addictive, deep in flavor and chock full of umami goodness. Make it to share this holiday season, or just make it to treat yo’ self when the shopping and wrapping and cleaning get to be too much this month and you need a glorious food distraction. As a bonus, it freezes beautifully, so store any extra for future gatherings.
