My Two Favorite Raw Vegan Recipes - Walnut Pate and Red Dressing


On a raw vegan diet like most humans on other diets, the same foods are consumed regularly.  For me on a raw vegan diet it is walnut pate and red dressing.  I use the walnut pate as a substitute meat.  In fact, even carnivores eat walnut pate in the absent of meat.  I put it in my salads or top my zucchini noodles for a meatball experience.  It it good to create patties or meatballs.


Walnut Pate

1 cup walnuts (soaked 20 minutes, drained)

1 tablespoon lime juice

1 teaspoon Braggs Liquid Aminos (or a low sodium soy sauce)

 dash of sea salt

1 tablespoon parlsey (or cilantro)

1 tablespoon onion

Pulse a few times and then process all in food processor for a minute.  Mix well.  Store in covered glass bowl for a week.


I top my salads with a dressing.  There are soooo many raw vegan dressings to choose from but this raw vegan red dressing is my go to that I make in double quantities.  Again, I use both in my salads and pasta.


Raw Vegan Red Dressing

1 tablespoon raw pumpkin seeds, ground

3 tablespoons lime juice

3 pitted medjool dates (soaked for 20 minutes to soften, drained)

1 tablespoon Braggs Liquid Aminos (or a low sodium soy sauce)

1 cup Bella Sun sundried tomatoes

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 clove garlic

1 tablespoon hot sauce (or pinch of red pepper flakes)

Blend in high speed blender until mixed well.  I use a Magic Blender for single batches, or my Cuisnart 8-cup Food Processor when i double the recipe. 

Top your salads or noodles with olives, onion, red peppers a complete meal!
