This rich and luxurious spread is similar in consistency to pâté, but at a fraction of the cost. Perfect for one of your more ‘posh’ parties, this spread can be served on crackers, toasted pieces of French bread or as a dip for breadsticks.


  • 1/4 pound firm tofu, halved lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped steamed green beans
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chopped sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Parsley sprigs (optional)


  1. In a single layer, place tofu between two small plates and weigh down the top with a heavy can. Keep pressed for no more than 60 minutes. Remove tofu and discard any liquid.
  2. In a large nonstick sauté pan, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the mushrooms, beans and walnuts and sauté about 5 minutes.
  3. Place the mixture into a food processor. Add the parsley, sage, allspice, salt and pepper, and pulse approximately 10 times or until relatively smooth.
  4. Shred the tofu width-wise and then squeeze to remove any excess liquid. Add the tofu into the vegetable mixture and refrigerate, covered, for 1-1/2 hours. Garnish with parsley sprigs if desired.
