Recipe 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.

Loved the taste of this recipe and because it's so versatile. Who needs crackers or bread (or a dehidrator)?! And it lasts 4 days in the fridge?!!! Fantastic! This can be a quick snack four days straight. Yay!

I am so bummed, I followed the recipe, would not puree, even added an extra couple of spoonfuls of water and then it got moving, but it just tastes bitter and not really flavorful. All the ingredients by themselves are good, I can not figure out what I could have done wrong when everyone else is loving it, and yes I know my way around food, I have tons of experience cooking and not cooking all sorts of recipes for decades. Any thoughts or ideas? I really wanted to give this to my dd but I fear the reprisal. :(

Warning bells.... I think your walnuts are funky! Have you tasted your raw walnuts?

Also, did you soak them in water first to soften them? This makes them easier to food process.

Also, did you use a food processor (and not a blender)?

When you say "process" it, which setting do you mean on the food processor? I have chop, puree, mix, and pulse.

Ok so just wanted to say that this works rolled up into sushi too! I may or may not have mistaken this pate for the ginger spread in a dimly lit kitchen today. ;)

I am sensitive to walnuts and pecans...has anyone tried this with macadamias, cashews, or almonds? Or do you have a different similar recipe? Thanks!

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.
