Walnut Pâté

Yield: 3/4 cup, 2 servings

This rich, meaty pâté is a good choice when you are really hungry. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soaked raw walnuts 
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon tamari
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • food processor
  • rubber spatula
  • small bowl
  • citrus juicer or reamer
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • cutting board

Put the walnuts, lemon juice, olive oil, tamari, garlic powder, and salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process into a paste. Stop occasionally to scrape down the work bowl with a rubber spatula. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the parsley and onion and mix well. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Walnut Pâté will keep for 5 days.

Curried Walnut Pâté: Add 1/4 teaspoon curry powder.

Pecan Pâté: Replace the walnuts with an equal amount of soaked pecans.

If no one has tried it before, this recipe is very simple and very delicious. As a 23 year old growing male, I want some hearty delicious foods to keep my weight strong while on raw foods. Not saying this is bad if you’re trying to lose weight, just saying this is a great hearty delicious dish.

I probably have eaten eat 2-3 times a week over the last year.

Definitely use fresh parsley over dried, makes all the difference!

This pate sounds delicious - can it be frozen?

Hi Judy,

This pate freezes perfectly, for up to a month!

Hi Jennifer,

love your recipes and the simple way you make food. I wondered if you can use cashews in a pate or do you have to use almonds/sunflower seeds?

Thanks,
Cheyenne

Hi Cheyenne,

Absolutely you can use cashews if you like.

I tried to make the pate—as alternative to meatballs but they fall apart (I don’t have a dehydrator). How do I make the nutballs (with sauce) without it falling apart? Thanks

Hi Vanessa,

These meatballs are a bit softer, not meant to hold together the way a dehydrated one does. What I would do is add just a bit of water to the processor so they are stickier. Then really ball them up with your palms and dip them in marinara. Serve them on the side, in a pool of marinara and eat with a fork (rather than mixing into pasta, which will make them fall apart).

Hi i would love to try this recipe but i am unable to use tamari as it has soy in it and i can’t have soy products.  What would be an alternatitve to using tamari please.  Thankyou.

Hi Andrea,

You can try “coconut aminos” a product that tastes like soy sauce, but has no soy
