I’m so pleased with this recipe!
I fancied making something different and with walnuts and cashews in the cupboard, I decided to have a go at making a Walnut based pate. I love Waldorf salad, so with that in the back of my mind, this is what I came up with.
I hope you enjoy it too. The apple gives it a lovely ‘appley’ edge, you could always try a Granny Smith Apple if you wanted to make it a little sweeter.
I’ve been enjoying it with Most Marvellous crackers, but some rustic bread or toast would be good too.
125gms TRAIDCRAFT Fairtrade Organic Walnuts
50gm TRAIDCRAFT fairade cashew nuts
1 medium sized carrot, grated
1 medium sized white onion chopped finely
1 small sharp cooking Apple chopped into 1cm cubes
1 stick of celery chopped finely
4 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
Place all the dry ingredients into a food processor and blend for 2 minutes at 30 second intervals.
Add the soy sauce and blend until smooth or until the desired texture is reached.
I like this pate to have a slightly grainy texture, but this is down to personal taste.
Try it and see!
