  • Best cracker for pate????

    Hey

    So, I bought a blender so that I could make home made pate to get liver into my diet. I would 'normally' eat pate with crackers, and so now looking at alternatives or ideas of what to use instead.

    Thanks!

    I just made some hemp seed crackers that were really good. They have cheese in them, so if you do dairy you may want to check them out. They're really simple to make too

      I usually substitute cucumber slices or bell pepper wedges for crackers. Not sure how it would go with a liver pate but maybe experiment with some veggies that you like to eat raw. To me, carrots and liver go well together, but I'm not sure about pate on them vs. them in pate.

        Whole foods and other HFS sell flaxseed crackers that don't have gluten or very many carbs. The book Primal Cravings has a couple of primal approved cracker recipes also. I personally usually just go with cut up raw vegetables for dipping.

          I am particularly fond of tomatoes with pate they add the juiciness. I just make a pile of largish slices of tomato on a plate and spread on the pate on them, salt and pepper and enjoy, delish!!

                    We've been using fried green plantains for crackers, we like them better than most GF crackers. I haven't tried them with pate but they were yummy with goat cheese and salmon.

                      What works really well is raw jicama. Nice and firm and flavor neutral. I always use it as a substitute for crackers, even for non-paleo people.

                        Cucumbers are my favorite--peel in stripes so they retain a grip and slice diagonally so they have a scooping edge.

                          or, just a spoon

                            Exactly!

                            Or, at a froufrou dinner I went to recent I was served pâté on top of steak.

                              I love eating my pate with a fork and a bunch of veggies (like a side salad, etc.). We have a French place down the street that serves pate (the kind that's molded so it has gelatin on one edge and comes in thick slices... I cut off some of the pate, dab on some heavenly Dijon, capers, balsamic, and a cornichon, and *nom* - comes w/baby greens, cabbage/carrots, etc. Dressed in a basic vinaigrette. (I'm often sharing the dish, so I don't ask them to hold the toast points)

                              At home, and/or with softer pates, cucumber is probably what I'd do, but I might have to try some of these cracker recipes! :-)
