Walnut Pâté (raw and vegan)
This is a very simple recipe that my mom found in Raw Food Made Easy by Jennifer Cornbleet. The only thing you need to remember is to soak the walnuts overnight in the fridge. It’s a very satisfying appetizer that your vegan/ vegetarian friends will appreciate.
1 cup soaked raw walnuts (We soaked them in a glass bowl overnight)
1 T fresh lemon juice (I didn’t have lemons on hand, so I used rice vinegar to go with the tamari flavor)
1 tsp Tamari
1/4 tsp garlic powder (roasted garlic would be best)
Salt to taste
1 T minced fresh parsley
1 T minced onion (can be left out)
Blend everything in a food processor. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Serve with crackers or use in a sandwich.
