Raw Sweet Almond Pate

Prep time: 10 minutes / Cook time: 10 minutes / Serves: 1 1/2 cups Category: , , ,

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in the bowl of your processor and pulse with the “S” blade just until chunky. You can either continue processing for a smoother spread; similar to pesto, or stop while there’s still chunks of almonds. I like it a bit chunky.
  2. The spread is thick, still relatively chunky, and served best with crackers, a slice of fresh bread, or combined with a simple warm bowl of quinoa and fresh herbs.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh basil – worked out to be about 3 (40g) packs of basil
  • ¾ cup raw almonds, soaked over night, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ cup fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon raw honey or agave nectar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Comments

Note:

This recipe makes quite a bit of spread, so I kept 1/2 of it in a mason jar in the fridge and the other half in a plastic bag. So delicious and simple. Just the right recipe to welcome what is bound to be a hectic week!
