Broccoli Paté With Quinoa Chips [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan






For the Broccoli Paté:

  • 1 fresh broccoli
  • 1.2-ounces cashew nuts
  • 4 walnuts
  • Basil
  • 2 celery leaves
    1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons small desalinated capers
  • A small clove garlic
  • 1.8-ounces extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the Quinoa Chips: 

  • 4.2-ounces quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Soak the cashews for about 3 hours then drain them and keep them aside.
  2. Soak the quinoa for 3/4 hours by changing the water a couple of times. Rinse repeatedly and toast dry in a pan, then cook in a volume of water equal to double for about 15/20 minutes or until the water is totally absorbed. Switch it to the mixer for a few seconds to break it a little, this will allow the dough to be together more easily. Turn on the oven at 350°F.
  3. In a boule, mix the quinoa mixture with the sesame seeds, then place it on a sheet of lightly oiled parchment paper. Divide the dough into two. With oiled hands, press it so as to make it as thin as possible, (if you can do it easier in the initial phase, help yourself with a rolling pin after covering the dough with a sheet of oiled oven paper also) surface the sheet. Bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and break it following the cracks that will form during cooking, put in the oven to brown for about 5 minutes. Repeat the operation with the remaining dough
  4. Wash the broccoli well and cut it into florets. Blanch for a minute and a half in boiling water. Drain it (keeping aside a cup of water) and cool it in iced water.
  5. In a mixer, reduce the pureed broccoli with the help of a little cooking water. Add the cashew nuts, the walnuts, the parsley, the basil, the capers, the garlic, the celery leaves, the salt and operate the mixer pouring the oil flush to obtain a soft cream (if necessary add a few tablespoons of cooking water). Store in a well-closed refrigerator and cover with a little oil to cover the cream. Serve the cream with lentil sprouts or others to taste and the quinoa sheets.


The cream is very good also accompanied by slices of grilled polenta.





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!
