This is a new vegan, raw food recipe featuring Living Tree Community Food’s “Pistachio Butter”.
As the Mommy of a 2 year old who LOVES personal attention I need easy, quick recipes that are also delicious, nutritious, and hopefully that both my son and I will enjoy. I mean honestly, who doesn’t want a recipe that is quick, easy and scrumptious, right? If you’re deep into raw foods and have the most complex gourmet recipes under your wings or if you’re just starting out and feel a bit overwhelmed this is one of those recipes that can easily become a go-to household favorite. The other thing I love about this recipe and pate’s in general is that they can be used in a variety of ways and can be improvised upon with the exchange of spices and veggies. If you own a dehydrator, I always enjoy taking the leftover’s (if there are any leftover’s) adding some ground chia or flax seeds (always grind your seeds fresh in a spice or clean coffee grinder), sometimes I add some other filler veggies, or soaked seeds and spread it over a teflex sheet, dehydrate and see what crunchy snack results form that little experiment. Often they turn into wonderful crackers and occasionally it doesn’t work so well. But it is fun to experiment.
