Makes about 12 servings

Although there's a long ingredient list for this recipe, it's simple to prepare and offers a stunning presentation of green, white, and orange layers that look pretty when sliced. Serve this as an appetizer or as a light vegetarian main course.

If you have a mandoline, cut long spaghetti-like strands of carrots to line the serving plates. Drizzle the Creamy Horseradish Sauce over each slice and garnish with a sprig of fresh dill or basil.

For the patés

Vegetable oil cooking spray

3 cups broccoli florets

3 cups cauliflower florets

3 cups thinly sliced carrots (about 6 carrots)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup coarsely chopped onion

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup cooked brown rice

3 eggs, divided (lightly beaten separately)

¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided

½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided

3/8 teaspoon salt, divided

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill

For the sauce

½ cup plain yogurt

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish sauce

1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill or ½ teaspoon dried dill

¼ teaspoon Tabasco sauce, or to taste

1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste

To complete the recipe

Sprigs of fresh dill or basil for garnish

To make the patés, preheat the oven to 350°F. Use cooking spray to lightly oil a 9-inch loaf pan; line the bottom and long sides of the pan with wax paper or baking parchment. Lightly spray with vegetable oil.

Cook the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots separately until tender: Put each vegetable in a medium microwave-proof dish; add about ¼ cup water. Cover tightly and microwave on high for about 5 minutes, or until tender. (Or cook the vegetables in a stovetop steamer for about 5 to 6 minutes.) Drain well and let cool.

While the vegetables are cooking, heat the oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender, about 4 minutes. Set aside.

For the broccoli layer, put the cooked broccoli into a food processor. Add 1/3 of the onion mixture, 1/3 cup rice, 1 egg, the Parmesan cheese, basil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Process until smooth. Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan; smooth the surface.

For the cauliflower layer, put the cooked cauliflower into a food processor. Add 1/3 of the onion mixture, 1/3 cup rice, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon lemon juice,1/8 teaspoon salt, and red pepper flakes. Process until smooth. Spread evenly over the broccoli layer; smooth the surface.

For the carrot layer, put the carrots into a food processor. Add the remaining 1/3 of the onion mixture, 1/3 cup rice, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt, and dill. Process until smooth. Spread evenly over the cauliflower layer; smooth the surface. Cover with a piece of lightly oiled wax paper.

Place the loaf pan in a roasting pan and pour in boiling water to come about 1 inch up the sides of the pans. Bake for about 1 hour 15 minutes, or until the top of the patés feels firm to the touch and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven, remove the wax paper on top, and let cool in the pan on a wire rack.

To make the sauce, meanwhile, stir together the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

To serve, loosen the edges of the patés with a knife. Turn out of the pan onto a serving platter and peel off any waxed paper that adheres.

Cut the room temperature patés into ¾-inch-thick slices. Transfer to small plates, top each serving with about 1 tablespoon of the sauce, and garnish. Provide forks for your guests.

Advance preparation

The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days in a covered container. The paté can be made early the day it is to be served; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Bring the sauce and patés to room temperature for serving.

    DUI Driver in Fatal Early Morning Accident Ordered to Detox Program in 1995

    The Santa Barbara woman arrested for DUI in the early morning accident that left three people dead early Monday morning has a lengthy court record out of Ventura County. Kimberly Kreis, 52, was ordered to serve 30 days in a detox program as far back as 1995.

    The car that Kreis was driving crashed into a disabled Mazda near the Castillo off-ramp of the southbound 101 freeway in Santa Barbara. Two 17 year old North Torrance High School students were killed in the accident- Jessica Leffew and Danielle Murillo. 20 year old Brian Lopez also died in the wreck. The driver of the Mazda, Eric August, is hospitalized in critical condition.

    A NewsChannel 3 investigation found records out of Ventrua County that appear to show that Greis has at least one prior conviction involving drugs and or alcohol, and in 1995 she was ordered to serve 30 days in a Cottage Hospital detox program.

    CHP investigators are still trying to piece together why the Mazda veered right into a guardrail, causing it to flip onto it's roof before coming to rest in the middle of the southbound freeway, which set into motion the deadly accident.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Guiterrez, said "A lot of things could have happened, He could have fallen asleep. We just don't know at this point."
