I'm going to make liver pate and don't know what to use for dipping. We are trying to eat grain free so would like an alternative to crackers. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas.

carrots are ok, but not great.
honestly, I'd probably use a spoon if I were grain free so couldn't do bread or crackers.

we are not grain free but are in-love with "Mary's gone Crackers"-black pepper would be really good

we ate pate on tart apple slices growing up

what about pork rinds?

I haven't had luck finding a healthy source for them, but will buy conventional ones occasionally...in this case, i think the extreme benefits from the pate will far outweigh any issues from the conventional animal product. (then again, you *could* make them from a pastured pig skin...)

sliced radishes?

sliced jicama?

I like bland, tart or green flavors w/pate - belgian endive, celery, sour apples, radish, romaine hearts, kohlrabi, jicama, etc. are all good choices.

Would you object to rice crackers? Falafel chips might be strong tasting. We also do slices of tart apple.

Belgianendive works really well as a scooper. But when i was GF, my fave way to eat pate was on a salad. Id scoop little balls w my cookie scoop, add some sliced kumquats and a vinaigrette.

We like to use red bell peppers as the crunch and sweetness of the veggie helps.

yesterday I sliced large raw carrot on the bias and used that for pate (I wanted bigger pieces than the circumference of the carrot )

YUM

I like daikon radish slices as a grain-free cracker.

I like cucumbers to scoop all kinds of dips.
