Although terrine is traditionally a meat-based pâté, you can create a plant-based meal that is just as delicious and packed full of nutrients! This dish could fool even the strictest of carnivores and is sure to impress your friends that follow a vegetarian or vegan diet (you can substitute the cream for a dairy-free alternative to make a stunning vegan dish).
