From zucchini you can cook a very tasty and tender pate. Yes, yes, it is pate! And it’s pretty easy to cook. To prepare it, you should use absolutely any zucchini, since they will still be pre-fried with other vegetables, and then chopped with a blender or twisted in a meat grinder. In addition to zucchini for making pate, you must also take carrots and onions. Butter, which will be added to the chopped vegetable mass, should be of excellent quality, since the taste of the finished squash pate also depends on its taste.
It is best to serve ready-made vegetable pate to the table cold, spreading it on slices of bread. However, you can simply put it on the table in a bowl and put a spoon next to it.
