Creamy Carrot Cashew Paté
1. Soak cashew pieces in water for 15–20 minutes, until soft, then drain excess water.
2. In a food processor, using the “S” shaped blade, blend the sliced carrots as finely as possible. Add onion and/or garlic and blend again. Add oil and cashews a little at a time and blend until smooth. Add water and tamari. Stop the machine intermittently and scrape the sides with a rubber spatula; blend again until smooth.
3. Creaminess is essential in a paté. Chill and serve.
