This is a very healthy, live food recipe with nut protein, EFAs and veggies. Use as a sandwich spread or thin it out slightly to make it a dip. As a filling you can roll up in lettuce leaves or spread into celery sticks. The recipe originates from Alive Magazine. It made a huge amount so I cut the recipe in half. As this is "live" food it does not keep, you need to eat within 24 hours or it begins to ferment. Perfect time to pull out your seed sprouter and make your own lentil or other sprouts - or you can usually buy a variety of sprouts in your local produce store. A food processor is the best tool for this, in order to get a true pate consistency. I have made it in my blender, which worked but I had to add some water to help things along so it was more like a hummus consistency. I am also editing to include about a tsp of tamari/soy/braggs as an option. I found it needed it an extra boost of seasoning.
