Thanksgiving Leftovers the Raw Food Way

One of my favorite things about a full-blown raw Thanksgiving feast is the leftovers. And luckily, raw Thanksgiving recipes – like my Walnut Paté appetizer – are delicious for days and can free you from post-holiday kitchen duty.
Traditional meat-based pates are delicious, but they are very rich and fatty. My Walnut Pâté, on the other hand is just as delicious, but high in healthy fat (and protein) instead of unhealthy cholesterol.
Walnut Pâté can be part of an hors d’oeuvres assortment to accompany crudités or served as a ‘plated’ appetizer when guests sit down. Create a lovely first course for your guests by spreading the pâté into celery stalks and red pepper slices and arranging them on a bed of pale green lettuce.
Let the After-Feast Begin
Walnut Pâté has an excellent shelf life; stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, it will keep for 5 days. It also has an excellent nutritional profile. 1/3 cup of pâté has 325 calories, but it provides 7 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.
What can you do with your leftover pate? Everything! This rich, meaty pâté is a good choice when you are really hungry. For a satisfying lunch, have a scoop of it on a salad with a light dressing. Add a little of your favorite curry powder and make a Curried Walnut Pâté. You can even transform Walnut Pâté into Not Meatballs to serve with Zucchini Noodles.
All of these recipes come from my newly expanded book Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People. I think you’ll love them.
