The Nute Pate

The Nute Pate

This pâté is my daily staple—it’s delicious, versatile, and filling. Not Tuna Pâté is the perfect addition to turn a salad into a main dish. You may wish to make a larger batch, since it will keep for five days.


1/2 cup soaked sunflower seeds

1/4 cup soaked almonds (or Walnuts)

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoons minced celery

1 tablespoon minced onion

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

( you can vary the flavors with different spices/herbs)


measuring cups, measuring spoons, citrus juicer or reamer, food processor, rubber spatula, small bowl

cutting board, chef’s knife, 8-inch

Put the sunflower seeds, almonds, water, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process into a paste, stopping occasionally to scrape down the work bowl with a rubber spatula. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the celery, onion, and parsley until well combined. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Not Tuna Pâté will keep for 5 days.
