Carrot Pâté

Carrot Pâté

This Carrot Pâté recipe is from the amazing Stanford Inn Eco-Resort, home of the famous Ravens Restaurant, in Mendocino, CA! This easy vegan recipe is reprinted with permission from the Stanford Inn’s cookbook Dining at the Ravens by BenBella Books.

Joan and Jeff Stanford suggest serving as a dip or spread with crudité or crostini. Chef’s note: you’ll need a high speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec to get the right consistency.
