Pate is like our Indian chutneys that are useful to top breads and finger foods. Most Pate recipes from the France and neighbouring countries are made using sausages or meat. I found a vegan recipe which is equally popular so decided to give it a try.
1 cup sunflower seeds (dried, soaked in water for an hour if possible)
1 tspn red chill
1 cup sunflower seeds (soaked for an hour in water)
1 spring onion with greens
few cloves of garlic
2 tspn lemon juice
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 tspn soaked red chillies
1 tspn black pepper
salt to taste
1) Mix all and grind to a coarse paste.
Spread on carbs of your choice or serve as dips for vegetable sticks.
