WebMD Recipe from

  • red onion, cut lengthwise into thin crescents
  • 2 teaspoons
    garlic, minced
  • 2 cups
    mixture of shiitake and cremini mushrooms
  • 1 cup
    red wine
  • 1 teaspoon
    sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons
    fresh sage, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon
    fresh thyme, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons
    fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon
    ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon
    nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup
    walnuts (or pecans), toasted
  • 1 tablespoon
    soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons
    balsamic vinegar
  • 2 1/2 cups
  • 2 teaspoons
    powdered agar agar, or 2 tablespoons agar agar flakes
  1. In a large skillet, heat up just enough olive oil to coat the pan over medium heat. Add the red onion, garlic, and mushrooms, sprinkle with salt, and sauté until starting to brown. Add the red wine and continue to cook over medium heat until all the liquid has evaporated. 
  2. Remove from the heat. Add the sage, thyme, rosemary, nutmeg, pepper, and yeast and stir well to incorporate.
  3. Transfer to a blender. Add the walnuts, soy sauce, vinegar, and 1 1/2 cups of the water. Blend until smooth.
  4. In a small saucepan, bring the remaining 1 cup of water to a boil. Whisk in the agar agar and turn the heat to low. Continue whisking until the agar agar is thoroughly dissolved, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add agar agar mixture to the blender with the mushroom mixture and blend until incorporated.
  5. Test the pâté to ensure that it sets up by refrigerating 1 tablespoonful for 10 minutes. If the test pâté isn’t firm by then, dissolve another 2 teaspoons agar agar powder or 1 tbsp. agar agar flakes in boiling water and add to the pâté. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days. Unmold and cut into slices.
