Raw vegan pâté & stuffed mushrooms

raw Pâté stuffed mushroomsToday I did a raw foods “culinary art” demo at the Ogden art festival. It was a sweltering day but I had a blast!  The food left the tray as soon as I sat it down which I assume is a good sign and since  everyone was asking for my recipe I though I would share it with all of you.

This raw pâté  is a quick spread and can be used on sandwiches, wraps and even sushi. I like to use it as a dip for my veggies when we are on picnics or on my morning toast. The great thing about this spread is that it last forever…well up to 2 weeks in the fridge but in our house that is practically forever.

During my demo I used the pâté  to stuff some mushrooms  for a quick and easy faux fancy appetizer, everyone can use a little bit of fancy in their lives now and then.
