Pate d'Almond

Pate d’Almond

Here are a few recipes for pate that are endo-friendly. These are excellent as a light meal with some gluten-free bread or as a snack. To create these dishes, you’ll need a high-quality blender or food processor.

Free of dairy and gluten

40 or so whole, unblanched almonds
2 spring onions and 12 stalk of celery
1 large and 1 little carrot, with lemon juice
2 to 3 tablespoons of nori flakes (optional, or use other seaweed)

1. Soak the almonds for at least 12 hours and up to 36 hours, with water changes made every 12 hours.

2. If you have the time, peel the almonds after draining them (I think it enhances the flavour).

3. Peel and cut the carrot, then chop the celery and spring onions. These should be blended or processed in a food processor along with the almonds until smooth.

4. Mix in the seaweed flakes after adding lemon juice to taste. Although salt is optional, I don’t believe it is necessary.

Keep chilled and consume within three to four days.

A particularly healthful veggie is the onion. The onion bulb is a significant source of medicinal compounds and may be used as a home treatment for a variety of illnesses.
