I love pâté, all kinds of pâté, but last year I tried a new to me pâté. At my friends wedding she had these amazing picnic baskets set out for all of the guests. Each was filled with an assortment of goodies and treats among which was a delicious mushroom pâté. Why hadn’t I thought of that before? This version was such a fantastic alternative to the traditional liver based variety. So I went home and thought, why not try and make it myself?
With a mouthful of a name this bulgogi recipe is far from the traditional beef based Korean dish. Nevertheless this vegetarian filling leaves vegetarians and carnivores alike satiated and content. Packed with protein, tofu and quinoa are marinated in a korean style bulgogi sauce and then pan-fried until golden brown. It’s easy to feast, guilt free, on delicious lettuce wraps, with crunchy carrots and cabbage topped with quick pickled cucumbers.
