‘Waldorf’ Walnut Vegan Pate

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.

Walnut ‘Waldorf’ pate

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!
All the ingredients are available from eye2eye FairTrade Shop.
