The recipe of this carrot cashew paté that I’m sharing with you today is a perfect example of how you can turn carrots with its amazing health benefits into a true delight: paté. This carrot cashew paté is ready in a few minutes and tastes so much better than the store bought vegan patés and spreads.
As you probably know I have this thing with carrots. You can wake me up in the middle of the night if you have a carrot soup or carrot juice to offer. However, I also love to grate my carrots or throw them in my food processor and make a quick carrot salad. And if I have my food processor out, why not try to make a paté, right? After several attempts this delicious carrot cashew paté was created. Mission accomplished!
This paté is delicious on (buckwheat) crackers, mixed in a salad, and it also makes a nice spread for on cucumber rounds. Each and every bite is like a little explosion of flavors. Yum!
