Sundried Tomato Pate


This is a Pate I made last week and really enjoyed. When tomato season comes around buy tomatoes in bulk and dehydrate your own.  They taste so good.  You will need a lot of tomatoes though. They shrink a lot. Of course you can grow your own too. Mine just never produce enough so I am glad to get them from the organic farmer’s market.

1 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked for a few hours

1/2 cup fresh tomatoes

1/2 cup walnuts, soaked

1/4 cup basil

2 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp curry powder

Salt to taste

Blend everything in the food processor. If you do not have one you can try the blender or a hand blender.

I enjoyed the Pate on cucumber slices and loved it spread on collard leaves and wrapped up. You can add olives, cucumber, avocadoes etc. to the wrap as well. It is so quick to make and can be stored in the fridge for a few days.
