super simple, super tasty, super healthy lunch idea - vegan avo, tom and mushroom pâté toasties!
how? mushroom pâté
5-6 dried shitake mushrooms, soaked in 1 cup of boiling water, drained (soaking water reserved)
1 garlic clove
1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon of evoo
salt and pepper to taste
combine the ingredients into a food processor and blitz to combine. whilst the food processor is running, slowly add the cooking water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mix takes on a pâté consistency (smooth but with some texture)
this will store in the fridge for about a week and is not only great as a sandwich spread but also a tasty accompaniment to pasta sauces or stirred through rice - yum!
