Once again I tasted something delicious at the store and decided to remake it my way at home: gluten-less, cheaper, and perhaps even tastier. I came home late one night, pulled out the trusty food processor and created this walnut paté. I’ve made it 3 times since and each time it’s a treat. I was calling it “vegan paté” at first, but man, people get freaked out. So I’ve moved on to calling it, Walnut Paté. Try it. I swear it’s a good, cheap, and chock full of protein treat.
2 small cloves garlic
1 1/2 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cup pecans
12 ounces silken tofu
3-4 teaspoons cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons wheat-free tamari
In a food processor fitted with an s-blade, chop the garlic. Add the nuts and chop until fine. Add the remaining ingredients. If using FIRM silken tofu, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to smooth it out. The second round of this I used medium silken and that was silkier and delightful.
Whip up some, and I’ll be over.
Too funny – I know what you mean about the name… but this sounds great! Mmmmm so gonna try it (and no, I’m hardly vegan but so what! ;-P)
