Carlina Will is going to be your new best friend. A chef/TV Writer and Producer/Podcaster/Very Nice Person, she is working with Disney to create a new animated series called Carli’s Magical Baking. In her cooking, Carlina looks to her Southern and Caribbean roots for inspiration, and that’s what you have here in her fascinating recipe for Impossible™ Caribbean Pate.

In Carlina’s words: “Sharing my family recipes has just become more inclusive thanks to my partnership with Impossible Foods to create the Impossible™ Caribbean Pate! Growing up I’ve been allergic to beef and pork most of my life. Now I’m able to enjoy some of my traditional Caribbean recipes thanks to Impossible Foods’ meat made from plants, which cooks just like ground beef and tastes amazing! Immerse yourself into our island culture!”

There are two parts to this dish, which is similar to an empanada. The first step is to make the filling, which involves cooking the Impossible Burger with a mixture of chopped bell peppers. This is a Caribbean dish, so don’t be afraid to go colorful—get green, red and yellow bell peppers.

The dough is a fairly standard dough mix...but don’t forget the vanilla essence! This will give your dough hints of a distinctive and semi-sweet flavor, which will contrast nicely with the savory filling you’ve made.

The key to making pates is to not overload them with filling. Don’t put in more than a tablespoon in the center. This allows you to fold the dough over and seal them with drops of water on the edges so that they seal completely without tearing the dough. It sounds hard, but trust us, it’s not. Relax and if the first couple don’t look quite look perfect, it’s not the end of the world. You’ll be a pro at putting them together in no time.
