Mushroom and Tempeh Paté [Vegan, Grain-Free]





Cook Time



  • 11-ounces mushrooms
  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1/2 stalk celery
  • 1-ounce tempeh
  • 4 dried Porcini mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 3 rosemary sprigs
  • 3 sage leaves
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of soy sauce
  • 30 capers
  • 1/3 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • Chili pepper, as needed
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • Pepper, as needed
  • Salt, as needed


  1. Soak the porcini mushrooms.
  2. Sauté the mushrooms with two tablespoons of oil, a clove of garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. Wash and fry all vegetables. Cut the carrot and celery into small pieces and sprinkle with a little oil and a drop of water, a bay leaf, a rosemary sprig, a clove, and a leaf of sage. Sauté until soft but not discolored.
  4. Boil the tempeh for three minutes, then let it cool and crumble. Drizzle it with the soy sauce, and some chili.
  5. Mince the capers very finely. Pass the mushrooms in a meat grinder or, if you do not have it, finely chop the knife. Add the vegetables and tempeh, always making them go through the meat grinder.
  6. Add the capers to the pan with bay leaf, rosemary, sage, clove and chopped parsley. Cook for three minutes. Add salt and pepper if necessary. Blend part of this compound making it creamy, then mix it with the minced mixture.





Homemade pasta, Italian classics, and more. I'm a landscape architect, but now my job is to cook and take food photos for magazines and companies . I'm vegan because I love animals and I want to do the best I possibly can for the environment. My goal is to help everyone get closer to having a vegan kitchen because it's necessary to protect our planet and resources and it is important to consume consciously. My vegan meals are healthy and ethical, but I also have a sweet tooth. To be convinced of how good they are, just try!
