Carrot Pate




Description

This article is from the 20th Century Appetizer Recipes, with numerous contributions by known and also anonymous authors

Carrot Pate

2 c Carrots; sliced

1/4 c Onion; diced

1 ea Garlic clove; slivered

1/4 ts Dill

2 tb Olive oil

1/2 c Water

1 tb Arrowroot; dissolved in

1 tb Water

2 tb White miso

1/4 ts Sea salt

2 tb Tahini; optional

"For this recipe you may use a food processor instead of a blender to puree the carrots. Mash the carrots roughly before pureeing them. You might need to add a little extra water; in which case, simmer the pureed, flavored carrots for a little while longer. The pare should not feel wet. The additional of two tablespoons of tahini will make the pate taste richer and help hold the ingredients together." In a medium saucepan, saute the carrots, onions, garlic and dill in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the water, cover, and simmer until the carrots are tender (about 20 minutes). Puree until a smooth paste and return to the saucepan. Combine the dissolved arrowroot, miso, salt and tahini, if you wish. Add this mixture to the pureed carrots. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring constantly and cook until the pate detaches itself from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat, turn the pate mixture out onto a lightly oiled serving dish and let cool. Serve the pate with crackers or toast, or serve it as a dip with crisp, raw vegetables.
