“Pâté” and “vegetarian friendly” aren’t words that you typically see alongside each other but, with the help of roasted cauliflower and pecans, you can make a silky, umami-packed spread that is almost as indulgent as the meaty stuff.
This couldn’t be easier; blend together some jarred roasted red peppers, white beans, and seasonings, and you’ve got a healthy, travel-friendly dip in minutes. Pack with crudité, pita chips, or rice crackers to dip.
The Pitt Cue Co. chefs were wowed by the pickled mushrooms they tried at Momofuku in NYC. So wowed that the only way to take them up a notch was to deep-fry those suckers. They share the recipe for their uber-umami Crispy Pickled Shiitake in Pitt Cue Co.: The Cookbook, and it is totally worth the effort.
