Recipe: Sun-Dried Tomato Butterbean Pâté

Sun-dried Tomato Butterbean Pate Vegan

Finding vegan fillers for sandwiches and wraps can sometimes be a challenge, so here’s a super-quick recipe for a ‘throw it all in and blitz’ pâté that is lip-smackingly tasty, packed with protein, and keeps well in the fridge to use whenever you need it.

This isn’t just for sandwiches, but also makes a great dinner party starter with crispy toast and green salad, a simple party dip for crisps or crudités, or serve it with crackers in place of a cheeseboard.

Using the oil from the sun-dried tomato jar or tub makes this extra tomato-ey, with lemon juice and fresh thyme to finish it with a zing.

Who knew butterbeans could taste so good?!

As always, this pâté was made in my trusty high-speed blender for a super-smooth texture, bean skins and all – if you’re interested, check out the Optimum 9200A* blender by Froothie.

  1. I have never tried making my own pate before, but this looks really easy and anything with sundried tomato is good with me.

  2. I can’t wait to try this, maybe even for supper tonight. As I mentioned to you on Twitter, butterbeans are so underrated. I also combine them with avocado and chillies. Sun dried tomatoes are a favourite ingredient of mine too, bringing such a depth of flavour.

  3. I always default to hummus, but this sounds sooooo good. Off to forage in my cupboards for the ingredients!

  4. I love pates but have never made one but this one really does appeal to me. I have always been put off by the ingredients of regular pates. But this, being vegan, sounds perfect to make at home. Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x

  5. I think tinned beans are the best thing since sliced bread! I often use canellini beans or butter beans to make hummus style snacks.

  6. This sounds so good Kate, although we’re not vegan we are vegetarian and finding interesting pates and spreads at the supermarket can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. Pinning #CookblogShare

  7. This looks so scrummy Kate. If I wasn’t just going out to dinner with friends, I’d be very tempted to whip up a batch for supper.
