Raw Pate Spread
3 Cups sunflower seed or pecans ( i use sunflower seed because they are less $) 1/4 cup lemon juice (may need a little more) 1/3 cup olive oil 4 dates 1 bunch of parsley or cilantro (either is great. i do like the cilantro a little more). dash of salt 3-5 cloves of garlic Mix seeds or pecans first. Add the rest of the ingredients. You may need to add a little more lemon juice or olive oil to make it sticky (like play dough sticky). I like to buy baby portabella mushroom from Costco ($5) and Kalamata olives from Costco ($7.50 for a huge jar), stuff the mushrooms and top it with an olive. You can also take big slices of red cabbage and spread it on that. Today I used nori sheets (like for sushi), put the spread on, thin slices of avocado,olives, carrots and celery. So yummy! You could stuff small peppers etc. Ps there is just something about the Kalamata olives that taste so good with this.
