Syn Free Pate

I absolutely love pate, but never in a million years thought i could eat it on Slimming World. Thanks to Francesca Hayward for posting a recipe on a slimming group. I changed a few things and it came out delicious, considering there is no butter in the recipe it is rich, creamy and just like an ordinary pate.
It is completely syn free on extra easy too.....


500g mushrooms chopped
400g chicken livers chopped
1 garlic clove finely chopped
1 onion chopped
4 rashers bacon fat removed and chopped
1 tsp mixed herbs
2 tbsp of quark
salt and pepper


In a large pan sprayed with frylight, fry the mushrooms till golden and set aside.
Re spray the pan and fry the onions till soft, add the garlic and mixed herbs and fry for 1 minute, then add the chicken livers and fry for 5 minutes, add the bacon and fry for 2 minutes. Let it cool down then blitz in a blender till smooth, mix in the quark and season to taste. Mix in the mushrooms and refrigerate. 


  1. This looks fabulous Rachel!
    Do you know i it's freezable?

    1. I'm sorry i don't know as it's never lasted long enough in our house to have to freeze it, if you try it, let me know how it comes out x

  2. Hi. Just made this and all I can say is amazing! Even my partner likes and he not a pate fan. Thank you. X

  3. I am very new to this. Can you suggest anything low syned you could use to spread the pate on. like crackers of some kind?

    1. Yes it is great on crackers, i use Finns crackers as i can use them as my HEB, I also dip veggies into it, its nice on toast, wholemeal of course. To make the bread go further, slice a slice of bread into 2 so its really thin, then toast and you have melba toasts then.

  4. I can't eat mushrooms �� any suggestions on what I could use as an alternative?

    1. Hi, You could leave the mushrooms out, or try my Smoked salmon pate.
