Vegetarian Pate
 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup soaked almonds (directions for soaking below) or regular (non-soaked) almonds
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped (not necessary to peel carrots)
  • 2½ tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh or bottles is fine)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated on a microplane - huge time saver
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon shoyu or soy sauce
  • Sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Garnish: Hemp seeds or Black sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. If you are soaking the nuts: Rinse the almonds well in a strainer and then place in a bowl or jar with water well above the nuts - to allow room for growth. Soak for 8 hours. Rinse and drain well.
  2. Place pate ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping sides often. Be patient - you want it nice and smooth!
  3. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with hemp or black sesame seeds.
