Birthday Pate

birthday cakeTwo beautiful and dear friends celebrated their birthdays this past week.

And along with enjoying some celebratory birthday magic, I shared my “trusty”

recipe of easy to make, delicious, raw curry almond pate (now known as Birthday Pate).

I got so much positive feedback, I decided to share the recipe with all of you.

Roll it up in a nori wrapper with some veggies, use as dip for veggie sticks, use as

a salad topping, stuff it into a tomato, mushroom, cucumber or bell pepper, or spread on a flax cracker.

Please enjoy on your birthday or any day!

Birthday Pate Recipe (aka Curry Almond Pate)

This pate lends itself to endless variations. Try adding sundried tomatoes or olives, fresh fennel, herbs or anything else your imagination can dream up!

  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked 8-12 hours and drained
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, chopped
  • 3/4 cup carrot, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, chopped
  • fresh lemon or lime juice to taste
  • fresh lemon or lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon Celtic salt
  • dash cayenne

In a food processor using an “s” blade, process the veggies, garlic and ginger until minced.

Add the rest of the ingredients and continue processing, scraping down the sides as needed, until desired smoothness is reached.

Serve garnished with chopped cilantro or parsley in any way you please!
