    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.

    I've used this before: Flourless Cheesy Bread Recipe | The Nourished Life

    or, just a spoon
    Some people just need a sympathetic pat... On the head... With a hammer.

    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! :-)

    Crunchmaster gluten free crackers are good. Amazon and Sam's Club carry them. Or cucumbers work well too!

    Rice cakes are good if you've got something you want to eat a portion of, not a smear.

    I've been eating pâté for lunch for a couple of weeks now. My favorite scooper is celery, but I've also enjoyed bell pepper. I think cucumber would be good as well, but my last batch of pâté was a little too stiff for cucumber. The thing I like about celery is that if it's sweet and mild, the crunch is almost crackerish. I do think something with a bit of crunch is nice with pâté. I'm not a fan of rice things as a substitute for wheat crackers, because they have a hard crispiness that screams, "I'm not wheat!". Veggie substitutes don't have the same pressure in my mind.

    I like pate on sliced tart apples, jicama, or celery.
