Anja’s amazing pâté recipe

Ingredients 
1 packet of tempeh
1/2 cup of *mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped spring onions
1/4 cup chopped dill (I like to use a little more)
1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
2-4 Tbsp tamari soy sauce

Tempeh and Dill Pâté
Tempeh And Dill Pâté

Steps 
1. Cut the tempeh into 1cm slices and steam for about 10 minutes or until it has a nutty aroma and turns a lighter colour. Let it cool after that.
2. In a *mixer blend it with all the other ingredients.
3. Voila! Enjoy your pâté.

*My notes: I use a vegan mayonnaise and as I don’t have a mixer I blend all ingredients in a blender except the greens and gently mix the greens in after (otherwise the pâté turns out green!)
