I like to pair these canapés with rich, dark red wines, whisky signature cocktails, and green appetizers like blistered shishito peppers and squash rosettes. With a vegan crudités ensemble, you’ll have a colorfully complete, gorgeously delicious, vegan party menu!

A Few Tips!

1. You don’t have to remove the garlic cloves from the heads to roast them, like I’ve done.

You can simply slice the tops off of 2 to 3 heads of garlic, place them in foil, drizzle with olive oil, and bake for the same amount of time, 40 minutes at 400 F. I just like to remove them first to make sure I get every ounce of that tasty garlic out of the head. It’s also less messy to take them out beforehand.

2. You can easily double the recipe without making more!

This recipe makes 12 canapés, but that’s with the pâté piled HIGH on the cracker. You can easily add half as much pâté to a cracker to make 24 canapés, and they’ll still be a tasty bite.

A Few Common Questions

1. How long does the mushroom pâté take to make?

The pâté takes about 45 minutes to make, about 15 minutes to cool. If you’re making appetizers like these, they take about 30 seconds to assemble (depending on how fancy you want to get).

2. How long will the pâté last?

This pâté will stay perfectly delicious in the refrigerator for 5 days in a container with a lid.

3. What kind of flowers are those and are they edible?

These flowers are Feverfew. They’re tiny flowers in the family of dandelion and sunflowers and are quite edible and mildly flavored. A perfect addition to any edible flower garden!

4. What do I need to make this recipe?

  • Tin foil
  • Sharp knife
  • cutting board
  • Measuring cup
  • Sauté pan
  • Food processor
  • Small cookie cutter (if you want to make perfect pate circles on crackers)

To Make the Canapés

1. Chop 6 scallions to about a half inch thick pieces.

2. Add a tsp. of olive oil to pan. Make sure you’ve dipped each scallion in oil and placed them evenly around the pan before turning on heat. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and flip them. Turn the heat back on and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.

3. Once finished, add pâté to crackers with a spoon, or by placing a cookie cutter in the center and filling them. Press gently and slowly around the sides of the pâté as you pull up the cookie cutter to create a perfect pâté circle.
