California Walnut Pate


Nuts are good for you and this delicious spread will ensure your quota for a week or two.  Pack it in a crock and serve with extra crispy crackers.

  • 2 cups of bread crumbs
  • 2 cups of walnuts, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons of cumin
  • 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper sauce
  • walnut or olive oil

In a food processor, blend first seven ingredients until they are combined but still not a paste.  Add oils by the teaspoon until a spreadable consistency is reached.  Taste and add sea salt for desired saltiness.
