Broccoli Pine Nut Paté Bites (Virtual Vegan Potluck)

Finally, after great anticipation, today’s the day bloggers from all over the world are gathering for the Virtual Vegan Potluck! Since we all can’t get together for a potluck in person, bloggers are posting vegan potluck recipes today, at the same time, on their blogs. I’m really excited to be playing a part. I can’t wait to see what everyone is bringing to the table!

If you’ve never attended a virtual event like this here’s how it works: Participating vegan (and vegan ‘friendly’) bloggers are linking their blog posts to each other, so you can travel through the event clicking from post to post. The virtual buffet table starts with appetizers and ends with dessert. Each post will feature forward and back links that will take you to the next participating blogger.

If, for some reason, a link is broken and you’re not able to move forward you can visit the hosting potluck page to pick up where you left off. You’ll no doubt meet wonderful new-to-you bloggers and come away with some great new vegan recipes.

Thank you Annie, Somer, Jason and Lidia for coordinating this wonderful event!

Enjoy the Virtual Vegan Potluck!

My contribution to the potluck is a quick, easy, healthy appetizer…

Broccoli Pine Nut Pate
3 (well-packed) cups broccoli florets*
¾ c pine nuts**
1 clove garlic (or to taste)
½ tsp sea salt
drizzle of olive oil (or oil of choice) for desired texture
1 Tbl nutritional yeast, aka: nooch (optional)
¼ c fresh parsley (optional, but great)

Put broccoli florets in a food processor and process until broken down. Add in all remaining ingredients except oil and process until smooth. Add in a small amount of oil, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Taste test and adjust as needed.

* Don’t throw out your broccoli stems. Save them for juicing or for a stir-fry.

**If you can’t have nuts you can substitute sunflower seeds.

Using a rubber spatula scoop the pate into a large zip-lock bag, cut off one bottom corner of the bag and pipe the paté onto cubed jicama, into olives, onto crackers, crudités, etc. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

In my next post I will share alternative ways to serve/eat the broccoli pine nut paté (one is a main entrée the other a quick snack).

Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of the Virtual Vegan Potluck!

Thanks for visiting My Kitchen Apothecary.
