Directions

  • 1. Throw everything in a food processor (except the soy sauce). (Of course, make sure you soak and rinse your walnuts first. Soaking your walnuts is to soften them. Rinsing your walnuts removes the enzyme inhibitors and will make your  final result taste better.)
  • 2. Process  ingredients in your food processor until it become a smooth, cream-cheese-like consistency.
  • 3. Add the soy sauce near the end and then process again. The reason you are adding the soy sauce last is because if you add it at the beginning it might splash all over the place while the walnuts are flying around inside. Best to wait until it's smoother before adding the soy sauce to your mixture.
  • 4. Serve this walnut pate on cucumber rounds. The flavour of the cucumber and the pate go together in a heavenly way. Don't know what a cucumber round is? It's easy to figure out! Slice an English cucumber into chunky rounds that resemble crackers. Spread the walnut pate mixture on top. Tadah!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

OK, you're coming home for dinner. What are you going to eat?? Have a batch of this raw walnut pate recipe on hand and your tastebuds will thank you. Smooth and salty, it tastes divine paired with cucumber rounds.

It has a very savory flavor. It keeps in the fridge very well--if this pate lasts long enough!

The cucumber combination also makes a perfect appetizer, but I prefer to have a huge plate of cucumber cracker rounds for dinner!

PS: The soy sauce gives this raw recipe its taste so do not attempt to make this recipe without the soy sauce.

So addicting! I have been really loving your recipes. Super easy to make and even easier clean up as I'm only using a blender. I'm not an official vegan/raw/vegetarian but I do take my eating very seriously due to a chronic illness. Thank you!

Hi Josh! Walnuts work best in this recipe, but pecans would definitely be fine too :)

Just tried the pate. Delicious. And very filling. A big item for me. I thought it needed more Nama shoyu. Easy enough to mix in.

This walnut pate is delicious. I used coconut amines as I cannot have soy products and I am sure that it is just as good as the original recipe. I can't stop eating it! Thanks for such great recipes.

Deeeelish. I just made wraps featuring this as a filling with large mustard green leaves and stuffed with enoki mushroom, julienne cucumber and baby spinach. Fantastic!

I can't wait to try this. I hope it will taste good using coconut amines rather than the nama shoyu as I cannot have soy products. I have tried several of your recipes and they are all amazing!

Do you have a recipe for raw "mashed potatoes" or "stuffing?"

Hello!

I am a new vegan. My best friend has been a vegetarian for the last 7.5 years, and I always laughed and said there's no way I could do that, love meats and cheeses too much, blah blah blah. Well, for health purposes a few months ago, I decide to cut back on my beef and dairy consumption and somehow ended up eating raw vegan for a week and didn't even realize until after the fact. It was such a natural feeling way to eat, and I didn't have to limit myself on the fruits and veggies I ate. Long story short I've been 90% raw for almost 2 months now, and I don't know that I'll ever go back to eating meats and cheese again..

As for this recipe... YUM. The saltiness it brings is wonderful for my palate, considering I rarely use salt in anything.. it's a wonderful switch up, and I will Definitely be making this again! Thank you!
