Recipe #36 Port and Stilton Pâté

I made this for a picnic in June. I used red onions, rather than spring onions. I caramelised them before adding them. It looked like shit (literally), but it was super tasty.

55g/2oz butter or vegetarian margarine
1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped
60ml /2fl oz port
½ lemon, zest only
125g/4oz vegetarian Stilton, crumbled
1 small bunch parsley, finely chopped
freshly ground black pepper

1.    Melt the butter in a saucepan and gently sweat the spring onions until soft; add the port and simmer gently for 3 minutes.
2.    Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
3.    Transfer to a blender and process until the mixture has bound. Check the seasoning.
4.    Divide between individual ramekins and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve with melba toast.
