For such a fine-looking vegan starter, no one will have guessed it took such little effort. The soaking time for the cashews and the chilling time for the pâté make this recipe time deceptively long because the preparation for the carrot and cashew pâté is just 5 minutes.

Yes, 5 minutes! It’s quick and easy to blend the soaked cashews and the rest of the ingredients and spoon the luxurious pate into ramekins. 

Once it’s chilled you can serve it with micro salad and crackers.
