Smoked Vegan Mackerel and Horseradish Pâté
This vegan pate is a great alternative to traditional mackerel pate. The banana blossom adds a wonderfully moreish texture, whilst the liquid smoke and nori create a lovely smoked-fish-style flavour.

What is pâté made of?
Pâté can be made with a range of ingredients. Traditional pâté can be made with pork, fish, or duck but you can also make pâté with vegetables and legumes. Mushrooms, beans, and chickpeas are great to create the signature creamy texture.
Can you freeze pâté?
Most vegan pâtês are fine to freeze. Ensure it is sealed in an air-tight container in the freezer and keep for up to 3 months.
Do note, the texture of the pâté may change slightly once defrosted.
How long does pâté keep once refrigerated?
For any leftover pâté, we recommend keeping it in a sealed jar in the fridge and eat within 5-7 days.
