Faux Gras (Vegetarian Foie Gras)

recipe image

Capers liven up this chickpea-based spin on foie gras.


unsalted butter



3 1/2

capers (preferably salted)


vin santo or tawny port (dessert wine)


can chickpeas


white truffle oil

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

  1. Melt half of butter in a medium sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until well caramelized, about 45 minutes. Add capers and vin santo, and stir to loosen the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Continue to cook until the liquid has reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool completely (about 1 hour).
  2. Transfer to a food processor and add chickpeas and truffle oil. Puree into a paste. Add remaining butter and puree until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Mound puree in a serving bowl and chill for at least 2 hours (up to 24 hours). To serve, spread on toasted brioche.
