Dips & Sauces/ Gluten Free

Chestnut and Red Wine Pate

This is a rich pate that I have made gluten free by making breadcrumbs from a few slices of my healthy bread.   I love the rich flavour of the red wine and chestnuts.  Spread on some gluten free crackers or toast, this is simply delicious. 


1 small onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1 tspn dried thyme

150ml red wine

150ml vegetable stock

100ml chestnuts, chopped

100g chestnut puree

75g gluten free breadcrumbs

salt and pepper


  • Heat the oil in a saucepan and gently cook the onion, thyme and garlic until soft.
  • Add the vegetable stock and red wine and bring to the boil.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chestnuts, chestnut puree and breadcrumbs.  Mix well and season to taste.
  • Cook over a gentle heat until thickened.
  • Spoon the mixture into your dish of choice and chill in the refrigerator.
  • Slather on crackers, eat and enjoy!
