Raw Mushroom Pate

The other day I went to the Asian Market, as I mentioned in the previous post, and I was lucky to find some beautiful, fresh Shitake mushrooms. I had a small carton of button mushrooms in the refrig already and thought that combining the two would make for a wonderful Raw Mushroom Pate. Here are the ingredients and  how I put it all together:

Raw Mushroom Pate

by Elizabeth @rawlivingandlearning.blogspot.com

3 Cups of finely diced Shitake and white button mushrooms

4 leaves of fresh basil

1 Tbsp of low sodium Tamari diluted in 2 Tbsp water

1/4 Cup of raw sunflower seeds, soaked and dried

1/2 Tbsp dried onion flakes

1/2 tsp Italian spices

1 tsp coconut vinegar

1 small tomato cut into thin strips

1 small carrot spiralized

collard leaves as the wraps

I began by preparing the ingredients. The raw sunflower seeds need to be soaked for 30-60 minutes and then left to air dry on some paper towel. I also finely diced the mushrooms and measured out my spices. I diluted 1 tablespoon of low sodium Tamari in 2 tablespoons of water.

Next I prepared the tomato and the carrot for my garnishes. I cut the thick stem out of the collard greens so they could easily be wrapped up with the pate and garnish inside.

I rinsed, drained, and blotted the sunflower seeds with paper towel.
Using a hand chopper I chopped the seeds fine.

Next I mixed the spices, Tamari and coconut vinegar into the diced mushrooms and seeds.

To assemble, lay down a collard leaf and top it with some of the pate, carrots, and tomato. Roll up like a open burrito.
You could also use tender cabbage as your wrap or any leafy green that you love!
